Hi Harry,
I've used the shim with the gateway before.  Just tested it again, and
it seems to work - albeit I am using an old version of the IB gateway from
august 2011 (I haven't upgraded TWS for ages either).

I'm also setting the shim to use Api Level of 47 in ~/.shimrc:

let DbmsHost = localhost,                       
    FeedHost = localhost,               
    ApiLevel = 47; 

I forget why I use 47, but seem to remember having problems with other values.
