[jdom-interest] Problem with getMixedContent()

This is an inherent problem with the scheme used by PartialList. The new
improved scheme, FilterList, is currently being worked on. If I remember
correctly, the workaround is to do something like:

List children = parent.getMixedContent();
// manipulate the children list.
parent.setMixedContent(new ArrayList());
