[jdom-interest] XML file corrupted by XMLOutputer

I would suggest you:

a) Try the same remove operation in a standalone app (outside the
servlet environment) because it's likely something fishy is happening
with your servlet output stream.

b) If the corruption still happens, send in the code that reproduces the
problem (even if it only *sometimes* reproduces the problem).
