Thank you Luis,

I have attached to Jira a Junit test for the CompareUtil.equal method that 
should prove the issue we are facing and should confirm that the fix I am 
proposing should work ok.
As regards the bug fix release, at the moment this is the only issue that I am 
aware of that is causing some pain to OFBiz and having a bug fix release for it 
would be great; however I know that the release workflow requires a good amount 
of work and I am wondering if I or other OFBiz committers may be of any help in 
the release process (e.g. we could help the FOP community to maintain a release 
branch for 1.1 by backporting fixes to it and testing it).
I am wide open to any suggestions. Of course OFBiz will upgrade to the new 
release 2.0 as soon as this will be available and we will help you to test that 
as well. All in all I am just trying to give something back to the FOP 
community, since the OFBiz community has been a rather silent and passive user 
of your amazing tool :-)
