The following is from my debugging through xmlc.rb

Breakpoint 1, dump_element at xmlc.rb:94
xmlc.rb:94:                                     children.push ch unless 
(ch == "" || ch == nil)
(rdb:1) p ch
"\"\n\""
(rdb:1) p children
[]
(rdb:1) s
xmlc.rb:94: `undefined method `to_str' for nil' (NameError)

How is 'nil' trying to do a to_str?

Thanks
David
