Ok thanks. Really interesting that it worked in JSF 1.2 version. In my debugging it looked like there was only one line of code stopping this functionality from working ie the urlMappingForward check. It was introduced to fix another bug (fix #150 or something like that). Would be a good feature to have in my opinion.
