We changed the way classes are loaded in Cocoon by using a custom
classloader. I *thought* this was working these days. Are you using the
latest CVS? If it is broken, I should run into the same problem some
time this afternoon.

The reason we're moving away from the classpath attribute is that we
don't actually know the attribute for all servlet engines, and it's not
portable. In theory, the new code should work across nearly all servlet
engines. Roll on SRV2.3.
