xquery can't find xinclude elements?


I am having some trouble with a bit of XQuery - I think that my use of XInclude is the culprit. 

I have an XML file stored in eXist which uses XInclude to include other bits of XML:


<myFile xmlns:xi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XInclude">
    <xi:include href=""myOtherFile.xml"" xpointer="xpointer(//d)"/>



I try to access this using some XQuery code:

let $foo := doc('myFile.xml')//foo[parent::b]

But this doesn't return anything.

However, if I write an expression which only accesses the explicit content of myFile.xml and not the included content from myOtherFile.xml:

let $foo := doc('myFile.xml')//foo[parent::a]

This returns <foo/> as expected.

Does anybody know what I'm doing wrong?

Many thanks for your help.
