Thanks for the help -- the problem is not data flow, however, but state.
In order to remove the elements, I need to set state to NULL, but if I
do that the rest of the pipeline is affected.
Is there a way to either force removal of elements, or perhaps to change
their state to NULL without affecting the pipeline?
