> So, I have figured this out.  The TextProvider is injected outside the control of the
core objectfactory.  If you look at the ActionSupport class, you'll see that there is a lazy
init method for acquiring the textprovider.  It uses the default ContainerImpl, as injected
( by type I think ) into the action, to inject the textprovider.  This means that it goes
around the spring object factory for this injection.
