Description:
With extractvalue(), there are some functions that cause
"XPATH syntax error" messages. I haven't checked for all
functions, but I believe there are at least ten which
cause this error.

How to repeat:
mysql> select extractvalue('<a>A</a>','/a[string-length("A")=1]');
ERROR 1105 (HY000): XPATH syntax error: '("A")=1]'
