Hi Duncan,

The problem turned out to be the use of shareable images (something like
shared libraries on VMS).  Also, I recompiled python.c with cxx (Compaq
C++) and relinked with cxxlink (Compaq C++'s C++ linker).  I'm not sure
if the latter was necessary and I don't know why it didn't work with
shareable images.

Now I get:

I said 'Hello from Python'. The object said 'Hello from Python'

in the example client with the example server running (both from
omniORBpy/releasenote).  Yes!

Thanks for your help,

Bruce Visscher
