I'm getting the very same error in my simple remoting client (not using
the CORBA stuff at all here).  It happens on this line in my source:

  IMyObject remoteObj = (IMyObject)Activator.GetObject(
typeof(IMyObject), "tcp://localhost:5000/MyObject" );

Using Mono 0.23 for Debian from www.debianplanet.org/mono in case that

I'll definitely have to check out the CORBA stuff - I've got some
existing CORBA objects on my network that would be really cool to access
from Mono and .NET!
