just a quick heads up to list members that IB has issues a new 
unixmacosx.jar (ver 881.3, once I get it going, it seems) file 
Friday, which calls for a missing riskfeed.jar

Additionally the start sequence has changed a bit and needs to 
reference that new .jar.

Friday late, I spoke w Dennis St at IB, and filed a tracking 
TAC big.

The fix, pending a new corrected jarball, is to manually pull 
the missing .jar file, and to position the result manually. 
In speaking with TAC, and with the examlpe Ireceived on the 
fix from Dennis, it is clear that they are not using 
Unix/Linux in their jarball release testing.  sad.

wget http://www.interactivebrokers.com/java/classes/riskfeed.jar
cp riskfeed.jar ./IBJts

and to amend one's start scripts.

         jclient.LoginFrame .

and all is well.  (well, at least one gets the login prompt, 
which now sports the notice about restricted weekend hours )
