    Probably because you have too many XML files that contain <book></book>. Look into xargs, or the - option for grep.

    $ find /path -name '*.xml' -exec grep 'pattern1' {} /dev/null \; | cut -d: -f1 | grep 'pattern2' -


    print pack("A25",pack("V*",map{1919242272+$_}(34481450,-49737472,6228,0,-285028276,6979,-1380265972)))

    Well that's probably because the argument list is too long ;)
    You can write a simple bash loop to get around this;
    for i in $(find . -type f -name "*.xml" -print -exec grep -i '<book></ +book>' {} \;);do grep -i "<name=>*.*Sydney*.*" $i && echo $i;done
