A DocumentFragment is a Node so xmlFreeNode would seem the right method.
As I recall, xmlFree() ~ free(), so it would not care about memory the
Node holds, if any. The result however would seem to be a leak, not an
invalid deallocation, unless libxml2 does not use xmlFree()-able memory
for the Node. Has the DocumentFragment been added to some other node?
