Hi Joe,
If you've removed the uber-jar, then you should be able to remove the CORBA
spec jar (assuming you're including the CORBA spec jar at an appropriate
location...). The uber-jar currently contains bad corba spec classes. The
dependency in rmi-naming put the CORBA spec jar in the classpath in front of
the uber-jar. I also plan on fixing the uber-jar (getting the proper spec
classes in the uber-jar).


So, after all that the latest patch only takes us from 16.4 to about
