[Sorry for this late answer, it's hard to follow the list these days]

The servlet API provides some methods to check if the servlet engine's
output buffer has been flushed to the client browser
(ServletResponse.isCommited) and, if no, to reset this buffer
(ServletResponse.reset).

Before calling the error-handler, the sitemap could reset the response
if possible. This would allow for a higher probability of having clean
error pages displayed to the user.

Does it make sense ?
