The interesting thing is that it seems to depend on the xml structure
returned by the server whether node.xml works or not. And if node.xml
works, the result is wrong. I used a workaround by switching to the
_importNode function.

So if noone really knows why we test there, I guess we can remove this
test. If noone is against it I will remove it.
