no, I am sorry, you definitly miss the point: I have no problems with 
some special scenario or some exotic servlet environment:

(1) I do install tomcat 4.04 (as described in the cocoon documentation)
(2) I do install Cocoon 2 (as described in the cocoon documentatio) step 
by step
(3) **it does not work.**

that is the point.
