Default SelectNodes, SelectSingleNode weirdness


I'm seeing some weirdness that may just because i've been staring at it entirely too long. I have some xml that has a section similar to this

<link currentlink="Yes" linkname="Current Link">
    <leased_bw unit="Khz" value="3549.9"></leased_bw>
    <month_bw savings="1468.9103448275864" percent="13.8" payback_period="10.211651141826922"></month_bw>


<link currentlink="No" linkname="New Link">
    <leased_bw unit="Khz" value="3060.2" current="3549.9"></leased_bw>
    <month_bw savings="1468.9103448275864" percent="13.8" payback_period="10.211651141826922"></month_bw>

I have some code that looks like this:

var nodeLinks = oXmlDomCalcNetwork.selectNodes("//linkcalc//link");
    var i;
    var nodeLink;
    var nodeLink2;

        nodeLink = nodeLinks[0];

            document.getElementById('txtLinkName').value = nodeLink.getAttribute("linkname");

            nodeLink2 = nodeLinks[1];

            document.getElementById('text1').value = nodeLink2.xml;

            var nodeLeasedBWNew = nodeLink2.selectSingleNode("//leased_bw");
            document.getElementById('txtNewLinkLB').value = nodeLeasedBWNew.getAttribute("value");

Nodelink works fine, i can parse out values from the XML just fine. nodelink2 works partially. I am writing out the conents of it, and it is parsing the correct nodes from the XML, but when i try to get the "value" attribute, i get the value attribute from nodelinks[0] instead of nodelink[1].

I've downloaded the latest zxml update.. and still no luck. I cant see what i'm doing wrong..

Any ideas?

I got around it, I still don't know what i did wrong originally. But i changed it to:

nodelink2 =oXmlDomCalcNetwork.selectSingleNode("//linkcalc//link[2]//month_bw[1]");

 document.getElementById('txtNewLinkAB').value = nodelink2.getAttribute("value");

or similar, and it seems to be working fine.
