[xml] using xmlDocSetRootElement to move nodes between documents

Hi there,

I've spent quite a bit of trying to track down a segfault in my code, and I think I may have found the cause. The following test code:

#include "libxml/tree.h"

int main() {
  xmlDoc* doc1;
  xmlDoc* doc2;
  xmlNode* node;

  doc1 = xmlParseDoc("<doc>Foo</doc>");
  doc2 = xmlNewDoc("1.0");
  node = xmlDocGetRootElement(doc1);
  xmlDocSetRootElement(doc2, node);

doesn't seem to be safe; xmlFreeDoc(doc2) apparently tries to free something already freed in xmlFreeDoc(doc1). This is what valgrind says:

is moving nodes between documents in general not supported this way?
