Committed the patch. You should get it with the next update if building
from sources or with the next regular build.

Well, if the TCF plugins are not started yet, first access to the
plugins will fire them up. Protocol can be always used, there is no
initialization to this one. The discovery model is a broadcast model.
Means, getLocator().getPeers() does not query the peers, it listens to
UDP packages to gain knowlegde about peers (in the same subnet). If you
access the peers at a point of time, the local locator service hasn't
received any UDP package yet, it will provide you only with the TCPLocal

Eugene, am I right?

Thanks, Best regards, Uwe :)
