tested on 2.4.1

See attached email from my collegae Tommy van Leeuwen.
xpat is definitely broken.

Another test to demonstrate this:

We are using cnfs with tradoverview in xrefslave mode.

Thanks for addressing this.

Subject: xpat changes between 2.3 and 2.4?

Hi,

In the past few weeks we've been upgrading about 7 or 8 inn 2.3.x servers
to 2.4 stable from cvs. Now it seems that XPAT doesn't work anymore, at
all.  Well, at least it doesn't give any errors, but it doesn't give any
results either.

Has anything changed between 2.3 and 2.4 regarding XPAT?

221 Subject matches follow (NOV) is always the result, without any
matches.

Also, by using article searches instead of overview searches we get the
same result:

moment of clarity.)

Thanks for any input.
