This is the panel.  The sockets are used for CORBA connections.

In the short term, don't do that.

I believe our ORB will have some mechanism for preventing this
problem.  E.g., some kind of authentication for socket connections.

Actually, I thought the panel already had this in place.  I don't know
the details of how it works, though.  For all I know it is impossible
to fix this problem with the current ORB.
