"The order of creation is wrong (and inconsistent with the order as present later in the book): The EJBObject is created BEFORE the bean is created. Steps 5 and 6 are really 3 steps: Now the services kick in and 5: the EJBObject is created 6: the bean is created 6b: the EJBObject stub is returned to the client."
This is easy to understand but modifying the diagram is not. Is there by any chance there could be a correct e-copy of the corrected diagram that can be printed off? What I do is print off all the errata then transfer it to the hardcopy (the book) and work from there. Given the fundamental importance of the diagram (and the general power of diagrams) I think a corrected diagram would be most useful.
