Error in User Manual

In both online and downloadable versions of Ice User Manual, I have found a
minor error.

In Chapter-25 (Developing a File System Server in Python)
In __init__ functions of both FileI and DirectoryI, a variable 'myID' is used but
never initialized. This caused python interpreter to fail. On inspecting the C++
version of the class, I have found that adding the line :

myID = Ice.Identity ()

before using myID easily solves the problem.

Though it is a *very* minor problem for anyone even slightly familiar with Ice,
it can cause annoyance to beginners who are starting with python.

Last, but not least, Thank You for creating Ice ! :)
