I fixed the race condition in the day trader initialization, and  
committed it to OpenEJB.  The problem was cause by the web  
application reveiving the notification that the TradeEJB (or another  
one) was started before the ContainerIndex received the  
notification.  When the web application attempted to look up the EJB  
in the container index it was not available.  I coded around this  
problem by having the container index check the kernel directly  
before failing the lookup, but we need a more general solution to  
address the non-deterministic notification ordering.
