is this a pure theoretical issue or have you actually experienced
"out of perm space" errors?

i agree with your analysis that the addShutdownHook call in
TransientFileFactory is a potential classloader related memory
leak. however, so far i haven't heard of any "out of perm space"

OTOH, if this is a real world issue we should probably address it.

BTW: TransientFileFactory is part of jcr-commons which could/should
be deployed as a shared library.
