The problem is that any change to the list using someting
else than the iterator invalidates the iterator.

Use the iterators metods to remove the item and it shoud work.

Also if you use the ListIterator instead of the Iterator it shoud 
(if correctly implementet) allow modification outside the ListIterator.
