I'm having problems with XPathHelper.

by the DOM Inspector. I do this by inserting my own object in the 
TreeView, which (in most cases) calls the old object. It's in 
The file containing the original definition is 

The issue is that when I initially load DOMi, it doesn't show any tree. 
When I tell it to explicitly inspect a document, it throws an error:

  Source File: chrome://inspector/content/viewers/dom/dom.js
  Line: 116

The line in question reads:
     this.mDOMView.rootNode = aObject;
in DOMViewer.prototype. set subject(aObject)

The equivelent line in lxr is 

Any ideas?
