	Ok, to help debug it'd be interesting to know what the type_id that is
marshalled by the Java ORB is, and whether it's precise or sloppy [
something I'm vague about in the spec, we assume it'll be precicely the
interface it is, and not some sub-type ].

	Secondly, it'd be most interesting to do:

	export ORBIT2_DEBUG=traces

	and post the output, which will probably help us a lot. Either way, I'm
happy to go 2.4 without perfect interoperability, since the 2.4 bit is
mostly a feature-complete, ABI and API stable milestone, rather than a
"has no bugs" thing which is unlikely to happen :-)
