position() does not return the position of a selected node in the tree, it
returns the position of the current node within the list of nodes that are
currently being processed. You want either count() or xsl:number.

The simplest solution here is XSLT 2.0:

<xsl:number select="leaf[@attrib='true'][1]"/>

The equivalent in 1.0 is:

<xsl:for-each select="leaf[@attrib='true'][1]">

Or you can use count():
