Basically in case of memory leaks.

Originally the libxml wrapper was leaking like a sieve and we had to
put a limit in. Those leaks (or at least the worst of them) were fixed
and the limit was raised to 10000.

I haven't really had a chance to work out if there are still leaks and
if there are to try and fix them...
