You can always specify the mode to use explicitly. 

Another way is to

       <map:action name="mod-db-add" src="org.apache.cocoon.acting.modular.DatabaseAddAction">

Specify the default mode for autoincrements. IIRC this currently
defaults to "manual" and not "auto" -> you could as well name the
manual autoincrement module to "manual" in cocoon.xconf and don't fuzz
with the default mode.

I'm not sure if the <mode..../> line above really works. I'm afraid
that there is a bug somewhere.... I will try to look into that but you
should be alright with the suggestions above.
