I guess it's due to my changes regarding switch to new Object Model and 
it was not intentional. Even thought the bahaviour you are describing is 
natural it seems that no code in Cocoon samples rely on it. What's more 
important, it seems that it's not covered by test cases. If it was I 
could spot the regression.

Leszek, I could help you with it but to avoid confusion I would need 
complete test template with exactly expected result. However, I'm not 
sure when I will be able because I have broken my openSUSE installation
