I have almost the same environment JSF 1.2_07 and Facelets 1.1.14.. And with such code can't reproduce. Could you please share your war example?
Sure, already sending it to your e-mail with some instructions. In around 5-7 minutes it will be delivered.
Waiting for any results...
Thanks in advance!
To not leave the topic unsolved:
The problem was mystically solved by tuning(make working) rich:fileUpload + rich:mediaOutput, removing gravel file upload and removing from form enctype="multipart/form-data". I don't know how it happened, but that's the actions I've done for solving the problem.
If you still need to reproduce the problem, I can find some time and rollback all the changes. Just ask for it.
Thanks for your answers.
