i've run into multiple libxml-ruby bugs which are documented at http://github.com/cfis/libxml-ruby/issues
there's also a huge list of unresolved issues at http://rubyforge.org/tracker/?atid=1971&group_id=494&func=browse
this fork switches to nokogiri: http://github.com/dam5s/happymapper
Iibxml-ruby is segfaulting under ruby 1.9.2. I've run some tests and believe it has to do with the garbage collector and the issue where you need to use 'nodes = nil' as is done in HappyMapper:
However, without a GC.start call after clearing the nodes, the segfault eventually still happens.
We just pushed an updated libxml-ruby version that hopefully fixes these various issues. Can HappyMapper upgrade to the latest version?
just submitted pull request with latest libxml reference
Great - thanks for pushing this along Eric.
Note current release is 2.0.2, I'll be pushing a 2.0.3 release in the next week with some minor fixes.
Thanks - Charlie
Release 0.4 fixe this
