 Ok, bug fixed, now the only separator is ','. Actually I didn't found any real
 specification of the servlet properties file.

 I just modify the line 50 of ServletPropertiesReader.java

    public static final String ARGS_SEPARATOR = " \n";

  is now:

    public static final String ARGS_SEPARATOR = ",";

 Please wait for the next maintenance release at http://jigsaw.w3.org/Devel/
