Just try to send any XML with namespace information and you should see
it happening, like:

<SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV="...">
    <faultstring>Bla bla bla</faultstring>

would become 

<Envelope xmlns="..." SOAP-ENV="...">
    <faultstring>Bla bla bla</faultstring>

The problems here are:

 * xmlms:SOAP-ENV became simply SOAP-ENV... which is a non-existant
 * faultcode and faultstring were unqualified elements and now are
declared as being of the SOAP-ENV namespace
 * renaming the prefixes is not a recommended practice, and, in fact,
you need to understand the specific XSD to do it, since QName types (the
SOAP-ENV:Server value) care about the prefix.

You're right... I'm just lacking the time to understand your testing
framework in detail enough to write a test on my own... but basically,
you just need to make sure the namespace qualification and prefixes are
