[resolved] tExtractXMLField "the root element must be well-formed"

Hi,
i have a simple XML-File, I read it with tFileInputXML, than one filed I want to extract with tExtractXMLField. The from tFileInputXML mapped variable contains:
<productidentifier>
        <b221>01</b221><b233>VLB_ID_old</b233><b244>3726602</b244></productidentifier><productidentifier>
        <b221>01</b221><b233>Publishers Order No</b233><b244>11199</b244></productidentifier><productidentifier>
        <b221>02</b221><b244>3866324502</b244></productidentifier><productidentifier>
        <b221>03</b221><b244>9783866324503</b244></productidentifier><productidentifier>
        <b221>15</b221><b244>9783866324503</b244></productidentifier>

in tExtractXMLField the Loop Xpath Query is "productidentifier". In this step the error 
Error on line 2 of document  : The markup in the document following the root element must be well-formed. Nested exception: The markup in the document following the root element must be well-formed. - Line: 4
occured.
But the XML-Snippet is wellformed. I'm a little bit helpless.

The solution is:
<productidentifier>
       <b221>03</b221>
       <b244>9783866324503</b244>
   </productidentifier>

is really " not wellformed". I put an map-Component between the steps, and add an 
"<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\" standalone=\"no\"?><message release=\"2.1\">" + row2.gtin + "</message>"

so the xml-snippet now is well formed, and the xpath query will work. 
Hope, this helps in other cases too.
