More than one Connector in state

I’m creating a custom Vaadin component with multiple child items. I’ve got it’s basic functionality all working. I have an item state class which has a

public Connector content = null; I can assign a Component to this Connector “content” in the state class and it gets communicated to the client, where I can add it to the layout.

After this, I have added a second Connector to the state:

public Connector menu = null;

When I debug in Eclipse, the second Connector “menu” gets the correct value, but when I debug in Chrome using superDevMode it always has value null.

Does anyone have a clue what may be going on?

On a related note, I’m experiencing differences in behaviour of the widget when setting Dev Mode On and Off (using the browser bookmarks). Has anyone seen this before?
