I'm not sure what is going on here, but unless you have to use 4DOM, I would 
recommend using minidom (much faster).

Rather than

from xml.dom.ext.reader import Sax2
                doc = self.xml_reader.fromString("<foo><bar>spam</bar></foo>")


from xml.dom import minidom
                doc = minidom.parse("<foo><bar>spam</bar></foo>")

And update the initializer accordingly.

In any case, we'll need more data to help debug.
