Arguably not correct, but it was a workaround to a worse problem in Tomcat 3.2-b6 that
would otherwise have required a pretty substantial rearchitecting of 3.2.  The old BugRat
system (and the CVS commits) have details on the rationale, but we added a flush to the
code in Tomcat 3.2 that handles includes.

Tomcat 4.0 does not exhibit this problem, and does not force a flush.  I do not know the
status of 3.3 in this respect.
