[Twisted-Python] xmlstream problem

I am using xmlstream.XmlStream to process...XML streams :-)
I'm having a bit of a problem, I have a client and a server, both 
protocols inherit from xmlstream.XmlStream. When the client sends 4 
messages, one after another, I get a parse error. I debugged my program, 
and the buffer the expat parser is given contains in effect, 4 messages 
consecutively like so :


(I replaced the child elements with "..." for your reading enjoyment)

and I get this Exception when debugging (otherwise it stays hidden) :

ExpatError: junk after document element: line 1, column 196

now column 196 is the end of the 1st msg's root element, I think it 
doesn't like the next message being right after the first. I did 
override xmlstream.XmlStream.onDocumentEnd()
because I didn't want it to close the connection in between messages, 
but in my method I told it to initialize the stream using :


I did this since I noticed that closing the connection forces a new 
parser to be created when the previous statement is called. The reason I 
don't want the connection to be closed is that I'd like a persistent 
connection to be held.

Does anyone know how to either have the messages given to the parser as 
separate messages so that it doesn't freak out?

Thank you,
