> we can have two elements with the same hasocode.
> javadoc states:
> "It is not required that if two objects are unequal according to the 
> equals(java.lang.Object) method, then calling the hashCode method on each of 
> the two objects must produce distinct integer results. However, the 
> programmer should be aware that producing distinct integer results for 
> unequal objects may improve the performance of hashtables."
> So sometimes, two different objects can have the same hashCode!
> So, sometimes two calls to addElement(element) can result in only the second 
> object stored in the ConcreteElement.
> So sometimes, on out instalaltion some table rows misses, or some row cells 
> misses or...
