Looks technically correct as far as my knowledge of the malloc routines goes. What was the problem with references that you fixed? Maybe with parent_stack_push_new() failure?

The main reference counting bug that sticks out to me is with the text and tail elements, because element_get_text() etc return a borrowed reference. It might be good to fix this while you are at it:

>>> element = Element("tag")
>>> class Text:
...     def __bool__(self):
...         element.text = "changed"
...         return True
>>> element.text = Text()
>>> i = element.itertext()
>>> next(i)
