Detect Mobi pocket pagebreak in calibre 0.4.99

Hello:

Can I adjust the calibre chapter detection to include the mobipocket pagebreak
'<mbpagebreak/>'

I tried the following in the xPath:
//<mbpagebreak/>
//mbpagebreak/
//*mbpagebreak

These are not accepted. The following:
//mbpagebreak

is accepted but creashes with a big page of traceback text...

Ideally I would like to be able to add this to the default search that is provided rather than replace.

(Edit - sorry the smiley faces are supposed to be colons - but the forum box keeps changing them... )

Alternatively:

Is there a method of forcing Calibre to insert a pagebreak? If so I could use an editor to replace the mobi page breaks with the calibre pagebreak 'code' if there is one...

Tick "Disable smilies in text" in the advanced reply form next time you need to post a string with ":p". Or use [code] tags.

Kovid:

I have a book purchased from Mobi with a LOT of mobi pagebreaks in it, when I use Calibre to convert it to ePub, it does not seem to put a pagebreak in at every mobi break - at first glance it seems to skip every other one...
