NOTE: the name "cforms" or "forms" doesn't make any different in the 
previous versioning scenario.

It's a completely unrelated problem and having a more distinctive name 
(cforms) is not going to help since the problem emerges violently 
already when you have two different versions of the same block installed 
in a single cocoon instance.
