Same for the function xmlCopyProp().

I tried it with libxml2-2.6.7 and libxml2-2.6.10 on MSVC and MinGW.
Both show the same behavior.

  This is not a bug. The function says it copies the attribute(s)
inserting the results in the node attribute list is not part of the
function work.

So, what is that "target" xmlNodePtr parameter for? The docs says,
it's the node "where the attributes will be grafted". That sounds to
me like they are being copied over to the properties of the given
"target" xmlNodePtr.
If that's not the case, that parameter seems useless and should be
marked as deprecated or something like that in the docs IMO.
