A (static) error in a path expression may be reported without a line number, e.g.

    "x"/x

returns

    Error
      XPTY0019: Required item type of first operand of '/' is node(); supplied value has item
      type xs:string

The line number used to be reported in this case with Saxon 8.9.

Best regards,
Gunther
