In some cases, when you add an attribute to an element, other expressions (such as for form controls) that reference the attribute are not updated.

Reproducible: Always

Test form demonstrating the bug

When you activate the edit button next to an email address, the corresponding `person` element is marked for editing with an `s:selected` attribute; the edit group should refer to the "selected" `person` element, but it does not rebind to the newly selected `person` element.  (Note that I am using XForms Buddy to verify that the attributes are actually being placed on the correct `person` element.)  Also, note that the `xf:output` that counts the number of `s:selected` attributes is also not updated, and finally that the "Unselect all" button does not delete the `s:selected` attributes that are added using the edit button.
Comment 2 Merle Sterling 2007-08-28 18:12:45 PDT
The namespace of an attribute was not considered when inserting an attribute so the actual name of the attribute that was inserted was 's:selected'. XPath however, recognizes s:selected as a namespace prefix + local name and did not match a node with an attribute whose local name was s:selected.

Take into account namespaces when checking for duplicate attributes and inserting a new attribute.

Not sure if XForms patches need approval while in
M8 freeze. XForms is not part of the build.
