Got similar issue, after upgrading libxml it was ok.

I'm working on packaging v9 for ASLO and bundles will carry bunch of
blobs(v9 uses recent pycairo) and I'll include new libxml as well.

The reason to bundle v9(and some its deps) for XO-1, these bundles will
be useful on XO-1(in contrast w/ v8):

* new v9's goocanvas to speedup redering
* optional no-zoom mode to speed up GC
* sugar toolbars e.g. it will minimize CPU usage, since UI components
  will be plain gtk widgets
* timing tuning for some dynamic activities
  (overwise they can brick XO-1)

I'm plaing to upload them to ASLO this week.
