Now, IF I tell the handler for <node> to expand the node, then all is
well - however then I am no longer using streaming, and for my needs I
don't think that will work.

I *think* what is happening is that the reader, upon reaching the end of
the <first_subnode>, is deleting the node, but retaining the enclosing
parent node. Then, when the end of <node> is hit, it calls the
validator, which then fails the node. IF I am correct, then what needs
to happen is that IF the reader is doing RelaxNG parsing, it needs to
save the children nodes of any open node, OR it needs to validate on the
fly and somehow record what it has seen.

Does this seem reasonable?

  Impossible to tell without full input and RNG. Depending on RNG it may be
compiled to a regexp or not. Then processing is completely different.
Making guesses is a very time consuming process, which I usually avoid
when I can.
  Can you reproduce with xmllint --stream --realaxng .. ... ?
