Yes, I see what you mean.  I don't think there was such a distinction in 
omniORB3.  Things have changed quite a lot...

In omniORB3, once you call deactivate_object(), no further new requests 
will be admitted, and so you can be sure that the object would be 
etherealised as soon as any requests that have already started complete. 
  I am not confident that this is the case for omniORB4.

Duncan: can you confirm?
