[jdom-interest] File lock after validation error

I have encountered problems with stream closing when using JDOM, I generally 
put in a finally clause just in case but in theory I would have thought that 
it's JDOMs responsibility since it is the one that opens the stream (or at 
least from the application level it looks that way).  

Either way, some indication of whose responsibility it is would help!
