I have no clear idea how Fop is integrated into Cocoon (probably 
having a own class calling Driver), so these are just wild guesses: If 
you look into XalanCommandLine, you see that - compared to 
CommandLine - the target Writer is explicitly closed; is this also in 
the Cocoon version?

You could add a reset method to Driver, which sets areatree and the 
others to null and is called at the end of processing the document.
