Hi,

I am experiencing strange behavior with the verifyXPath step. Checking the  
table for a string I need to parse the string in the xml file .. so the  
code looks there like this:

<verifyxpath description="table check"  
xpath="//table[@id='users']//tr[(((#{newnumber}-1)*4)+#{count}+4)]/td[1][contains(string(),'#{newnumber}varloB#{count}@127.0.0.1']"  
/>

then in results the xpath parses like this:

//table[@id='users']//tr[(((1-1)*4)+0+4)]/td[1][contains(string(),'1varloB0@127.0.0.1']

This syntax certainly worked on the version some time ago (cca 2005 ..  
another question would be how to tell the exact build of the distribution  
.. I have the old sources still on my backup)
but now with R_1393 does not work and gives me this exception:

Error Message: org.jaxen.XPathSyntaxException cannot be cast to  
java.lang.RuntimeException
Location: (line: )
Exception: java.lang.ClassCastException
