- Fix is to use a hibernate distro with the fix that is also compatible to Spring 3 stack.
- Thanks to Google and grepcode; found the fix been applied for Hibernate 3.3.2 (line 432)
- Also realized in this research that there exists NO spring-framework-3.0.3.RELEASE-dependencies.zip at Spring download site :-;( which makes it all the more difficult to find a spring bundle with the fix.
