Subject: [Athen] authorization conflict between JFW and WYNN

I have discovered what may be a conflict between WYNN 4.0 and JFW 7.0
authorization schemes. I tried to install a single user version of WYNN
4.0 on a machine that has JFW 7.0 on it. The JFW get its authorization
from a server. In every other respect this JFW is handled as a local
set-up, it just gets authorization from a server.

I could not successfully "activate" the WYNN set-up. When one of the
error messages mentioned the JFW authorization server by name, I became
highly suspicious. Three separate calls to FS help got the same
"the two authorizations schemes will ignore each other."

Finally, I commented out the JFW authorization by changing the name of
environmental variable, and (you know what's coming) WYNN started up
fine. Of course now JFW starts in the demo mode not being able to
the authorization.

Has anyone else encountered and resolved this issue?

- Thanks, James
