[fpc-pascal] Strange issue with TXMLConfig

Hi, I can only say that TDOMNode from Laz2_DOM in trunk has function CompareName.

All of a sudden I get a crash in my app trying to read a path from an XML file. The crash comes from the function TDOMNamedNodeMap.Find that crashes on this line: 

C := TDOMNode(FList.List^[I]).CompareName(name);

The strange thing is that a simplified example app does not crash! In any case I'm 100% sure the path exists and either way even if it didn't XMLConfig should not crash. The message form the lazarus code inspector is: Type TDOMNODE has no component named COMPARENAME.The code also never reaches the CompareName function when I set a breakpoint.

I'm at a loss. Is any one capable to understand what is happening?

Rgds, Darius

My code is:

    c := cache.GetValue('filelist/item_1/crc', 0);

The XML is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
  <filelist type="filecache" count="1">
    <item_1 crc="30150" filename="C:\myfile.txt"/>

The BT is:
