'Fraid not. Having discovered that we did deal with the string case
properly, I though we would probably be safe. However, I didn't realise
that any ORB could be brain-dead enough to use TypeCode indirections when
it makes the TypeCode bigger! As you hadn't at that point reported
problems with other primitive types I assumed that the other end was not
putting in indirections for them.

I suppose I ought to fix it ... I'll get back to you when I have a patch.
I am going to have our ORB reject mis-aligned indirections however, but
accept them only if -ORBlcdMode/omniORB::enableLcdMode() is enabled.
