	Ok - so I added some heavy-duty CORBA_Object_is_a regression tests to
ORBit2, and found no problem. Eventually I tracked it down to the fact
that the POA is not activated, so we get a transient exception as we do
the is_a invocation in-proc.

	I've special cased this 1 method in-proc, in ORBit2 - we need a better
solution later; I've also moved the check in bonobo-object to be better
placed, and I'll update the ForeignObject check too;

	I'll also try and get some releases out for 2.5.3 ;-)
