I got the same problem. It disappear if you add type="xslt" and other 
sitemap component selectors for all sitemap rules that use default 
selectors. There seem to be some bug in the default type mechanism in 
the Spring adapter. The strange thing is that it seem to work while not 
adding any block configuration snippets.

Looking further it works if I add default types to the generators and 
files elements in cocoon-xforms.xconf. Now it instead can't find the 
type jx in http://localhost:8888/cocoon-webapp/samples/blocks/forms/ 
despite that I have cocoon-template.xconf in WEB-INF/sitemap-additions/ 
and that the *.xconf in that directory are included in the main sitemap. 
It didn't help to rename and move the configuration file to xconf 
either. If I added the jx generator configuration directly to the forms 
sample sitemap it worked however. Seem like components are not 
inhereited properly to sub sitemaps.

I continued to look at the forms samples and they generally give a NPE 
while trying to call a flow script. If components aren't properly 
inherited to subsitemaps as I guessed above, this behavior is expected, 
so I didn't tried to understand it further.

So the problems this far seem to be that default types not are handled 
in a back compatible ways for component includes and that components are 
not inherited properly to subsitemaps.

Hopefully Carsten have an idea about what is going on.

If we have e.g. an Ant task that copy them we could have one that 
deletes them as well.

SVN ignore.

Don't know, but the mess is only in WEB-INF/lib AFAIK, so I guess it 
would be enough to delete the jars in that directory.
