Problem with Jdom8 - getChildren() on root doesn't work on a document that
has been transformed in memory using documented jdom transform methodology:

       Transformer transformer = TransformerFactory.newInstance()
          .newTransformer(new StreamSource(stylesheet));

       JDOMResult out = new JDOMResult();
       transformer.transform(new JDOMSource(in), out);
       return out.getDocument();
Interesting resulti is that 
    Element root = doc.getRootElement();
    boolean hasChildren = root.hasChildren();
returns "true" while
    List theChildren = root.getChildren();
returns a List of size 0 (zero).
This was NOT a problem with JDOM 7 but is a problem with JDOM 8.
Note that the doc prior to transformation doesn't have this problem.  Has
anyone else seen this with 8?  Is it true that I should never get a zero
size list from getChildren() method if hasChildren() method returned true?
