xmlXPathNodeCollectAndTest xpath.c:1923 : nodelist and node are NULL

However, xpath_object is still returned as NULL.  According to the
documentation, even if there are no matches, shouldn't I receive back a
valid pointer to an empty list?

  No, you may get NULL for an empty Nodeset. It's an optimization 
which made huge difference for XSLT performances (no need to allocate/
deallocate empty lists all the time).
