I think Joannie has gone through small adjustments a couple of times since she corrected flutz. I guess old habits die hard. Even then, Joannie never went back to flutz, tho. It was just the degree of knee bend of the skating leg as briancoogaert mentioned. She was holding it long enough not to flutz yet was not generating enough power from the Lutz mechanism (shifting her weight to toe-pick a lil too early I think). I am not sure, however, if it was the 2007-2008 season. At any rate, I hope some of the U.S. ladies who should learn from Joannie on Lutz as they share the same jump mechanics.
