i have a StringBuilder buffering the input, and i try to create
the XmlTextReader using a StringReader created from StringBuilder's

i can't, as the initial tag is only closed when the session is over.
imagine something like this:

(connection starts)
client: <?xml ...?><stream:stream ....>
server: <?xml ...?><stream:stream ....>
client: <auth info><.../></auth info>
server: <some answer><.../></some answer>
client: <comm1><.../></comm1>
server: <some answer><.../></some answer>
client: </stream:stream>
server: </stream:stream>
(connection terminates)

not a parser friendly communication ;)
