I performed the following instrumentation:

	service/http/HttpResponseAdapter: I added a flushBuffer() method
		on which I print the fact that I got there and invoke
		the superclass (Response) method.
		I also instrumented the doWrite() method to output the
		number of bytes being printed.
	core/ContextManager: I add print statement to indicate that
		request servicing had finished
What I found is the following:

. the ContextManager finished processing the request
. the Adapter flushBuffer method was never called.
. the Adapter doWrite() method was not called consistently (it was called
  to present the initial login screen, it was called to display the next
  page, it failed to be called when the output generated was dynamically
  generated by a servlet.
It is not clear to me that flush is done through the adapter.

As a remark, I would add that all writes are done through the servlet's
