Oops, the current default in defaults.sh for ORBit2 is 2.14.12, not
2.14.11.Regardless, the win32 binary for 2.14.13 is available now. The
2.14.14 was released yesterday, so maybe a 2.14.14 binary will show up in
the next few days. I see that 2.14.14 includes some changes right near the
"Can't create CORBA main-thread wakeup pipe" error message. With any luck,
that might fix bug 510720. But since I can't reproduce that problem, I can't
test it either.
