Uwe Clement: Sometimes i am geeting these warning within my vaadin application:

Jul 29, 2011 1:55:44 AM com.vaadin.terminal.gwt.server.AbstractCommunicationManager handleVariableBurst
WARNING: Warning: Ignoring variable change for non-existent component, VAR_PID=PID55

I'm getting the same warning message when I removed some component from container and then I try to access to it from this container. Example:

private HorizontalLayout container = new HorizontalLayout();
private Button component = new Button();
public void addAtFirst() {
    component.addListener(new ClickListener() { 

public void removeAtSecond() {
    // container.requestRepaint(); // uncomment this to solve problem !

public void doSomethingOnTheEnd() {
    component.setCaption("This went wrong");

So NOT forget to repaint parent container if you remove some component from it! This helped for me.
