I've been doing quite a lot of SOAP client programming
lately and I sure can't say I liked it. It sucks bigtime.
Anyway, what I did was basically to

1. Ask the WebServices provider to give me a good
    tcpdump capture of one good and one bad case.

2. Send raw XML structures to the WebServices provider
    with my dataitems inserted,

3. xmerl parse the reply.

To my knowledge there is no good SOAP lib available today,
One key componenet that is missing is an XML-Schema parser
which is non trivial.
