Is there some kind of problem with the DOMOutputter, when the given JDom 
Document contains a DocType definition?

Code to test the behavior:
            DocType docType = new DocType("test", "test", "dummyExample");
            Element root = new Element("test");
            Document doc = new Document(root);
            DOMOutputter domout = new DOMOutputter();
            org.w3c.dom.Document dom = domout.output(doc);

org.jdom.JDOMException: Exception outputting Document: Document 
contained top-level content with type:org.jdom.DocType
The exception is thrown in 

It seems like the output(Document document) method creates a correct  
dom document with the given DocType, but after it the contentIterator 
does not allow such DocType definition.

Is it a jdom Bug? (Or is it my fault? Its the first time i try to use
