I tracked the problem down to a refactoring that took place apparently 
before 2.1.3, so this was broken in that release IIUC.

Basically, the XSPModuleHelper was changed so that it assumed it needed 
to be setup() again before each use.  Probably the right assumption, but 
does not appear to have been assumed before and input.xsl was not 
changed accordingly.  Because there is no sample using input.xsl, this 
was only noticed by people who use the input module logicsheet and 
attempted to use 2.1.3.

The following simple patch fixes the problem:

Index: input.xsl

-           this._xsp_module_helper.setup(manager);
+        this._xsp_module_helper.setup(manager);


I can commit this change for 2.1.4 release (thursday) but would like 
Carsten to confirm this is what should happen since he's the one that 
refactored the module helper.

I don't have time right now, but it would be good if this was officially
entered in bugzilla so the record is there, and so it doesn't get lost.
