[xml] xmllint -shell and namespaces?

I'm having a hard time to determine if this is a bug, or if I haven't 
figured out what the right syntax is, but when I load any document with 
(explicit or default) namespaces in xmllint shell, I can't cd to a 
named node anymore. Following is an exampl:

% xmllint -shell foo.xml
/ > cat
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<foo xmlns="http://a.com/foo";>
Hello World!
/ > ls
--n        3 foo
/ > cd /foo
/foo is a 0 Node Set
/ > xpath node()
Object is a Node Set :
Set contains 1 nodes:
1  ELEMENT foo
    default namespace href=http://a.com/foo
/ > cd node()
foo > pwd

So, if "cd foo" does not work, what does? - other than anonymous 
references like the above "cd node()".

BTW, I have similar problems if the namespace is explicit, ie. if all tags 
are prefixed with say f: and I declare xmlns:f="http://a.com/foo"; in the 
document root element. Here, neither "cd foo" nor "cd f:foo" do the trick.
