Hi Helmut,

here my feedback:

> So far, this is expected behaviour I would say.

Yes, but this is a breaking change which requires modifications in 
almost all existing extbase extensions, build with versions < 6.2, since 
show and list actions need an ignorevalidation annotation to prevent the 
recusive validation

> That is very easy to fix by annotating @ignorevalidation for your show
> action.

Unfortunately this does not work at the moment. If you pass an object as 
argument to an action, it will always get an GenericObjectValidator as 
BaseValidator, even if you annotate the method with @ignorevalidation. 
The only way to prevent that, would be an @ignorevalidation annotation 
in the objects class definition, but that's of course no solution.

Ok, come on soccer fans in th community, go ahead!
