It seems to me that the bug not in the XSP engine but in the program
generator. May be it should return component handler instead of trying
to manage components by itself? Consider scenario: same XSP page is used
in two sitemaps, but these two sitemaps have different component which
is looked up by XSP. In current implementation, XSP will get this
component from the sitemap who invoked this XSP first.

If program generator returns handler, then every sitemap will get
handler for this XSP, with different manager -> XSP will lookup correct
component from the correct sitemap. And, on sitemap reload, this handler
will be disposed by the sitemap.

This does not work for sitemap compilation: it must be created with
parent sitemap manager in order to inherit components configured in the

I rolled back some of the changes - but left recomposable.

Yes - if XSP needs to get some component.
