I'm not sure we can debug any of these issues over the mailing list.
I hope you saw my post from last week (Friday I think) where I noted a 
limitation of nsdel, when the bound IOR is not reachable.

Note that you have essentially "downgraded" your nsdel because TAO 1.4a 
is based off of the DOC group 1.4.3 release, and you were previously 
using 1.5.6.  (The ACE version numbers start with 5, TAO starts with 1).

1.4a is the latest edition of the Developer's Guide.  There is also a 
1.5a release which does not have a corresponding Developer's Guide, but 
the info in the devguide is also generally applicable to 1.5a.  All the 
OCI releases of TAO are open source and freely available to the 
community.  For any OCI-specific questions please write to sales at ociweb.com.
