[xmlblaster-devel] MS c++ crash on shutdown fix


I have update cvs with changes to get c++ lib running again.

As part of this fix requires the removal of objman from
org::xmlBlaster::util namespace
the test suite will not compile.

The only effect is the init() fini() methods. maybe the class needs to be
renamed for the purpose
of reflecting xmlBlaster initiailization rather than object lifetime
Though perhaps not, I have seen .net 2003 arrive today at work, perhaps the
7.1 compiler allows
it to compile within the namespace as does gcc.
