All messages for which the XPath I gave below evaluates to true are SOAP
faults. 
All messages for which the XPath evaluates to false are not SOAP faults.

I don't know how to answer the question you ask about getLastFault
because I don't know what the message look like. Perhaps you'd like to
provide me a schema fragment?
