Grzegorz, i have attached the testcase to the issue

i have attached three files .. test-block is the main block .. webapp is 
for running that block .. before that u will have to apply the patch 
cocoon-trunk.patch to cocoon other wise it wont work at all ...
for both the block perform mvn install .. and then from webapp block mvn 

so the page


is generated using the parallel generator .. if ur lucky and dont get 
the error the first time then just refresh and am sure the error will be 
there .. there are five components included in that page ... out of 
which 4 are normal jx components and the fifth one is cforms component 
... all the jx component have been assigned different instance of the 
same object but still the properties displayed on the page shows the 
same value(they should be different) .. if u execute query for these 
components individually then they appear without any error .. links for 
querying them individually

[jx components .. shows xml output .. forgot to add the pipeline to 
serialize it to html.. u can add one]

[cforms component]

most of the time we get the error
Caused by: org.apache.commons.jxpath.JXPathException: No value for 
xpath: $cocoon/continuation/id
its because the objectmodel is being changed by all the components 
simultaneously ....the error is there on the logs not on the page .. on 
the page it will just ignore that component

u can change the line 427 in the class TestContentAggregator in the main 
block ... this.parameters.setParameter("parallel", "true");  change that 
to false and it will execute them in sequential and then the errors are 
gone ...

Would greatly appreciate it if you could have a look and try to resolve 
it ..

Thanks and regards
