First off all this report is not about the stuff discussed in
http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=16001. I am not complaining
about the relase method not being called between different invocations of a tag.
This is correct and spec compliant.

As far as I understand the specs the JSP environment must guarantee that release
is called at least ONCE during the lifetime of a tag instance. If this tag is
pooled this is done in the _jspDestroy method, but if tag pooling is disabled I
see no call to release.
I was forced to turn off the pooling because the 3rd party who created the
application did implement its tags in a NON spec compliant way such that private
internal data does not get reseted correctly for subsequent calls of the same
tag instance. I just want to be sure that release is also called in this non
pooling case.

This is fixed in the CVS, and will appear in 5.5.10

Thanks for the info. Are there plans for a backport of this fix to 5.0.x?
