I think this is pretty clear. The ancestor:: axis is a reverse
axis (the first ancestor of a node is its parent), therefore
the expected answer is 2.
The axis used to select a node set is irrelvant, if you filter a node
set with [1] (which isn't the same as using the predicate [1] in a step)
Then the node set is sorted into document order and the 1st node is
taken. If you expect 2 then the expected answer is 2, but nevertheless
you'll get 1.
