Subject Bug in jx:set?
Date Fri, 04 Jun 2004 08:33:57 GMT
Hi list,

I recently posted the following message on the user list, but didn't 
get an answer. I believe it is a bug, and I verified that this 
behaviour is still the same with cocoon 2.1.5, so maybe one of you 
could have a quick look at it. It should be easy to reproduce.

Thanks,

Jan Harms
