[XML-SIG] Attribute none object

Hi all,

This may be a PyXML related issued, but as it is from 4DOM I 
post it on 4Suite also...

Using PyXML 0.66, 4Suite 0.11, I do the following:

a = node.getAttributeNS('','src'))
print a
a = node.attributes.getNamedItem('src')
print a
print a.nodeValue

The first print does nothing (blank line), so obviously a is None

The second print is:
<Attribute Node at c62c8c: Name="src", 

The third one generates an exception:
AttributeError: 'None' object has no attribute 'nodeValue'

So in this case a is an Attr at the second print and then 
becomes None at the following one... I'm puzzled.

Any ideas?
