Hi Stuart
Should variable initialized be volatile here? Otherwise looks good.
Thank you

Unfortunately the registry is exported in the super() call, making remote calls possible before rmid's stub initialization is complete. The fix is to ensure that all remote calls wait for initialization before proceeding.
