My recollection of the discussion was that you asserted that there had been
a problem at one point, the xerces team asked for a test case, and the
discussion ended there.

Since you indicated that the problem was associated with an exception, I
decided that for Axis a simple expedient solution would be not to return
the parser to the pool if it threw an exception.  In other words, for the
99%+ case, we would get performance.  In the case where there is a
suspected problem, we get safety.
