I think the OP is talking about how Shale's View Controller  
functionality interacts with Trinidad's dialog framework, which  
relies on PPR and has a somewhat more involved request/response  

Stefan, I'd suggest putting together a minimal test application that  
demonstrates the problem and posting it as a WAR file in JIRA. A  
possibly unintended interaction between features from two different  
frameworks will be tough to diagnose without a testcase.
