What problems are you referring to? The fourthought guys just went
through a pretty thorough review of minidom and found only a few minor
bugs. In the modules and libraries sections of sourceforge's bug tracker
I see only one listed bug. Expat has hardly changed from the expat that
people have been using productively for years. I don't know of PyExpat
