A customer has complained that the DefaultWriteObject Flag is not set correctly in RMI-IIOP data streams.
In the code of
it says this:
// Write format version
// Write defaultWriteObject indicator
// - We write this as false, but may have to go back and
undo this if it is later called
// Changed to true since this is what will happen in most
cases. We still need
// to go back and fix this at some point.
Which is incorrect and needs to be fixed.

COMMIT TO FIX:
We do not have resources for interop testing, so we are not sure if this is a bug. However, on code inspection, it does appear that our code is probably incorrect. The person who was the expert on this code is no longer with Sun, so it is hard to say, with authority, if this is a problem.
