Here's the code:

package org.multipi;
import org.jdom.Element;

public class Interactor {
 Element initState;
  public Interactor (Element initSt) {
    initState =  initSt;
}// Interactor

,,, this seems correct, from what you have told me.

On the other hand, what puzzles me is the reference to

Why 'Lorg' and not 'org'?  As far as I can see there
is no string 'Lorg' in any of my code.

if I run 'ant ...clean' and then 'ant ... run', the problem
goes away, but only if  ia also clone() the Element object
before passing it to the interactor constructor.

Thanks again and TIA
