I've hopefully fixed the issue in the 1.3.1 branch.

subjectHasPrivilegeView.jsp depended on params and privMap being passed
from a higher level tile. This was not working for some reason with
JDK 1.6 which used to give an error. The error stopped happening with
v1.6 of subjectHasPrivilegeView.jsp as a jsp:useBean tag ensured
params was always available - if empty, however, it did not address
the underlying problem.

I have worked around the issue - params -> linkParams and privMap is
now shifted to the SubjectAsMap instance that is passed. This works
for JDK 1.5 and 1.6.

I don't know what was going on. There seems to be an issue passing some
attributes to a dynamic tile but if there is a systemic problem I would
have expected to have problems elsewhere.

Thanks. Again, I cannot seem to reproduce the problem with the
JDK 1.6 I am using
(java-1.6.0-openjdk- I may not,
however, be properly exercising the code where the bug may or
may not live.

Still, I will take a version 1.3.1 if I can get it (we are not
in production yet).

When would you expect to release version 1.3.1?
1.3.1 is due soon - we hope to have a release candidate by the end of next week.
