As per Martin's request on
MYFACES-3293, and possibly related to MYFACES-3117, there appears to have been a regression in state saving between 2.0.7 -> 2.0.8. To reproduce:
1. Deploy the attached WAR
2. Click 'Add Personal Contact'
3. Click 'Save' (without entering any values, therefore getting a validation error)
4. Upon validation error, note CSS styles have disappeared from many parts of the XHTML! In particular around the table and buttons
5. Switch the 2.0.8 JARs for 2.0.7, and it works fine
My renderer uses facets to determine the CSS styles. This incorrect behaviour is new to 2.0.8.
