I agree, but it hasn't deserved the same priority as the numerous other 
S2 + Xwork problems because there's a reasonable work-around.  If you 
can isolate it that would be great!

For me, the inability to release PermGen space (consumed by cglib 
others) overrules the need to re-deploy quickly because that kills 
Tomcat on any platform faster than an open file or unallocated resource 
consumed by S2.
