Subject: Re: [Caml-list] xpath or alternatives
If I am not mistaken you are selecting a domain whose first child is a
device node whose only child is disk node ...

instead of:
<domain..>[<devices..>[<disk..>[<source dev=(Latin1 & s) ..>_]]]

you should aim for something in the vein of:

<domain ..>  [_* (<devices..> (<disk..>(<source dev=(Latin1 & s)>|
<souce file = (Latin1 &s)>_)* |_)* _*]
