Don't know anything about this specific issue, but it looks like this is 
resulting from your upgrade process.  If all you did was copy jar files 
over to a previous cocoon version, you're likely to have components 
declared in cocoon.xconf which no longer appear in the jars.  You need 
to build\WEB-INF\cocoon.conf at the very least.  If you have your own 
modifications to it, you'll need to fold those into the new one.

This is the reason the custom conf target exists by the way.  Check out 
the wiki for XPatchTaskUsage and the custom conf description linked from
