Yes it does, but libxml returns XML_NS_ERR_UNDEFINED_NAMESPACE as error 
code. The function xmlSecParseMemoryExt does just like 0 as valid 
xmlParseChunk result.

Changing the three error check expressions (buffer, postfix, finishing) 
after calling xmlParseChunk to:

if(ret != 0 && ret != XML_NS_ERR_UNDEFINED_NAMESPACE) {

XMLDecryption works fine. :-)

I am afraid this is not a capable way to solve the parsing problem.
May be the undefined namespace needs to linked some more to the DOM 
document? What do the experts say?
