This is a very common mistake. NodeList objects are LIVE. This means
everytime you remove a node all the indexes the contained nodes and the
length of the list get updated. The safest way to remove all the
children of a node is to simply do something like:

while ((Node child = node.getLastChild()) != null)
    node.removeChild(child);
