I'm trying to report if an argument is invalid (for example, if an xpath expression returns a invalid type 
of argumnet, i.e. expecting one string and receiving a subtree). Obtaining the original xpath expresion 
would be great
(for example: "/root/tree/firstnode is not of type boolean")(

void xslFunctionCallback(xmlXPathParserContextPtr ctxt, int nargs)

in libxml source code, two fields of xmlXPathParserContext struct would have this info
const xmlChar *cur;   /* the current char being parsed */
const xmlChar *base;   /* the full expression */

Nevertheless, cur and base are always NULL...

I'm missing something important?

  Confusing... The XPath expression you're trying to examine comes from the
stylesheet or is it something you dynamically compiled ?
  In the first case you can't find errors, if there is an error the stylesheet
compilation will fail. You will get the element, andf you can lookup
the attribute hosting the expression. 
  In the second case look at testXPath.c from the distribution it does
this kind of error reporting.
