  I think I start to understand.

 When I dump the tree, all xml nodes after the text part are dumped on 
only one line.
  You are asking libxml2 to indent your document.
In XML all text, including "blanks" are significant.
When you have a node which has a text children, then libxml2
will not add any formatting spaces underneath because 
this means that text nodes are significant in this context.
The only way is to not let libxml2 guess about what is
significant or not since it will refuse to take risk 
and add the text node used for indentation yourself.
