Is this code by any chance used the create a new xml file ? In other words does input_url refer 
to a non-existing file ?

I have recently pushed a fix [1] to the python bindings that should prevent it from crashing 
when trying to create a new xml data file.

You could try to apply that commit locally and see if it fixes your issue.
