Thanks X 1000 man!
It worked by doing xmlStrDup()! But I am just wondering why it would not
crash when running on iOS 3.2 or older.

I am using libxml18.104.22.168.dylib on my iPhone application.
The application is targeting iOS 3.2, but the xmlFreeDoc() fails when
application is running on iPhone 4, but not on iOS 3.2 or before.
I also tried targeting iOS 4 and running on iPhone 4, same problem
The problem is if I assign the encocoding of xmlDocPtr , then call
xmlFreeDoc to free the xmlDocPtr, it crashes with message:
"pointer being freed was not allocated"
The snippet of code as follow:
doc = xmlNewDoc((cost xmlChar*)XML_DEFAULT_VERSION);
xmlFreeDoc does a xmlFree on doc->encoding, but you set it to a string
which was not dynamically allocated. In effect, you are calling
xmlFree on the "utf-8" string literal. This is wrong. You need to do
at least this:
doc->encoding = xmlStrDup("utf-8");
