OK, this is working fine.

But the things I tried from the "sample" 
directory don't work; and the stock_watcher
example from TRW ch9 doesn't work.

Let me give a concrete example:

darray and darrayc - I start the server:
  ruby darray.rb
  druby://host-computer:3995
  [return to exit]

And I start the client:
  ruby darrayc.rb druby://host-computer:3995

And it just hangs until I kill the server
with a return.

I tried "localhost" also -- not sure what it
means by "host-computer" -- no difference.
