JSR 170 (-> JCR 1.0) did not specify who's responsible for closing
an InputStream instance passed to an api method.

jackrabbit < 2.0 did not close the passed streams, the api consumer
was responsible for closing the stream after the api method returned.

JSR 283 (-> JCR 2.0) finally specified that that the following methods
will close the passed InputStream before returning control to the caller:

    Node.setProperty(String, InputStream)
    Session.importXML(String, InputStream, int)
    Workspace.importXML(String, InputStream, int)

jackrabbit apparently does not yet comply with the
new JCR 2.0 stream handling contract.

do you mind filing a jira issue?
