      Description

      This problem, which is also addressed by jsf-1.2 specs, actually afflicts all the pre-1.2.0 myfaces-core versions.

      In these versions, when an HTTP request is issued to myfaces, the package evincts it is a postback request in case at least one POST/GET parameter is issued.

      This can't be always the case, since there is the possibilty that some parameters are somehow used outside of the myfaces framework, expecially in the GET case.

      I propose a solution which basicly assumes that an HTTP request is a postback iff it finds a parameter having a name ending in the _SUBMIT suffix, which is the one adopted by org.apache.myfaces.shared_impl.renderkit.html.HtmlFormRendererBase to mark a form submit.
