      Description

      Perhaps this is not a frequent operation, but replaceNode method fails because of a nullpointer exception. The case corresponds to removing a root node from a xml document. This node has no parent (parent==null) and that is the point where the error is triggered. This may be considered a bad programming, but, anyway, the code should return something different from an exception.
