That sounds good. My next question is at what point can I register event
listeners, so that I can tell when the pipe connection has been severed? I
noticed that I can get the service manager from the XComponentContext, at
which point I can query for the XComponent interface and add event
listeners. If I do so, will I get events from the pipe connection or
something else?

Thanks in advance,
