Impossible to remove identity-links from create-listener

Description

http://forums.activiti.org/content/custom-task-listener-and-deletecandidategroup

The issue here is that the deleteIdentityLink() method will try to delete the identity-link in the database. Since the task isn't actually committed yet, the delete won't do anything. When the task-create call is done, they command-context will flush the pending entities that are created (process-instance, task and identity-links). Since the identity-links for candidate group are already queued for creation, they will be created.

This is an issue indeed and needs to be fixed. However, as a workaround (and perhaps a more valid approach for this kind of use case) I suggest using an expressions in the "activiti:candidateGroup" attribute, pointing to a bean in the context that decides what candidates are applicable for this task, at the time it's started.
