I am using the OMWS that Tim left me in a parallels image. I believe  
it is the last version as it is taken from repository and compiled...  
In any case I am not sure at all.

I just made a hack on my side and now is working so I will wait for  
Tim to come back and figure out this as I dont know how openmodeller  
has been installed on this debian that I have.
