If you're talking about "FOP from CVS" we need to separate the
maintenance branch (where the current releases comes from) and the trunk
(where the redesign happens). AFAIK the hacked Cocoon jar is only
necessary for the redesigned FOP. If you used FOP 0.20.5rc2 
(or from CVS tag "fop-0_20_2-maintain") I think it should work out of
the box with Cocoon (though I haven't tried).

Anyway, what exactly are the problems? Can you tell me how to reproduce
them? Maybe I can help.
