Starting embedded Orber

Hi,

I made an application that requires both Orber and Mnesia. The OTP 
documentation always uses mnesia:start() and orber:start() in the 
examples, but I was wondering if I could start the services by listing 
them in the ".app" file. Mnesia seems to work fine, but Orber just 
hangs waiting for something. Also, it would not start if it wasn't
install()ed before.

Calling "i()" gives the following report:

... but I couldn't find out what is mnesia_controller:do_wait_for_tab
waiting for.

Is Orber supposed to start from application files or should I simply add
orber:start () to my application's start/0? :-)
