Darn, I thought we had this one covered for all the releases but I must not have tested again
with myfaces 1.1. There is some history with this issue.

This has to do with how the view root generates component ids. For components that you don't
explicitly assign a component id, there is a utility function on the view root to generate
a unique Id. In the first versions of Myfaces and the RI, the internal sequence that generates
the ids was always reset even after the view was restored.

This is a significant because of components marked transient. Transient components do not
save state in the view. The "verbatim" component is actual an outputText with the transient
property tunned on. When the view is restored, we have to recreate transient components and
these components will need generated component id's since this is just text. In the early
version of clay, after the view was restored, we would generate, in sequence, component ids
for all components including components that were restored because this counter was always
reset. A clay html template contains allot of transient components because the entire template
is defined using components (Thanks again to Manfred Klug who helped figure this all out).
Interesting enough, making all the view represented by components is the same approach they
took in JSF 1.2.

The EG team determined that reseting the counter was a "bug". The view root should restore
the internal counter. Starting with version 1.1.2, myfaces changed the view roots to restore
the counter.

Clay Release 1.0.3

The counter being reset made PPR or any changes to a restored component tree problematic.
So, in JSF 1.2 they changed how component id's are generated. They are now generated by the
the container for JSP tags implementing JspidConsumer (JSP 2.1). The JspidConsumer will always
return the same id for a component.

Most recently, changes were made in this area to allow Clay to work with JSF 1.2.

Clay Release 1.0.4

I thought that I had this covered for all releases but it sounds like it's an issue. Trying
to play with all versions is challenge. I'd like to move the trunk to full JSF 1.2 support
and leave the 1_0_X branch for JSF 1.1 flavors. There are features in JSF 1.2 that we can
not support until we commit to the new EL API.
