like David, I also think this is a bug. For example for the query

declare variable $seq := (<A><a1/><a2/></A>, <B><b1/></B>);

for $i in 1 to 2 return ($seq[$i], $seq[$i]/*)

, zorba would return something like


and I think this is the correct result (you can try it easily on http://try.zorba-xquery.com ). You probably should try your query on other engines and than write a mail to the implementer of the XQuery engine you are using.
