I know this is supposed to work, and I know that the accessibility guys have
had success using a Java ORB, but I'm not convinced it can be used to do all
the old BonoboUI menu/toolbar stuff. I'm fairly sure that BonoboUI does not
support a pure CORBA API. But this is an old conversation, and I have not
done a full investigation.

I am prepared to believe that it might be a BonoboUI-specific problem - both
the C API and the CORBA bits have been too poorly documented for us to
figure out what we are supposed to be trying to do anyway.
