> The same error message for a stray nil:

This attempt, calling simple_matcher directly, gives nearly the same nil:

   def be_xml_with_(&block)
     waz_xdoc = @xdoc
     simple_matcher 'yo' do |given, matcher|
       wrap_expectation matcher do
         assert_xhtml given  #  this works
         block.call  #  crashes with a nil.first error!
     @xdoc = waz_xdoc

   it 'should have xpathic tags' do
     render '/users/new'

     response.body.should be_xml_with{  #  error points to this line
       xpath :form, :action => '/users'

So why no stack trace so I can diagnose this?
