I did not write this code, it was Brian.  I will look into it, to see why
ws-hostname does not allow the right connections.

This is also related to why tunneling doesn't work - the ws url is
explicitly defined by the server, and completely ignores
the path of the original connection.  So even if you tunnel local 9999 to
your server's 8888 and you can view the notebook
on local 9999, the ws connection will try on local 8888 and fail.

We will have to ask Brian about why the ws connection does not follow the
rest of the server.
