Nils,

Today's release of the shim loops to read pending records at startup
up until the occurrence of: a parse error; a time out with no data
whatsoever received; or, the common case, an account code query answer
message.  The NumWords configuration parameter is no longer needed,
and has been eliminated.  You should remove any occurrences of this
variable from your .shimrc file, as the shim will now quit with
an exception when it reads the NumWords key:

    Problem: 503 rc file flawed -- startup processing failed

So, no matter how many open order and order status messages may
be dumped out prior to the IB tws response to the account info
query, the shim can still obtain the necessary start up data
as long as that query is ultimately answered.

As a result, users are free to use the shim with an IB tws that has
been configured, via the related option of Configure->API->All API
Settings, to download open order messages at startup.

Thanks,

Bill
