UPDATE 1-Australia shares open lower, NZ flat after glitch delays start

 (Updates with NZ shares opening after technical glitch)
    March 8 (Reuters) - Australian shares slipped at the opening
on Wednesday while New Zealand shares opened flat after a
technical glitch delayed the start of trading by 90 minutes. 
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         was flat at
7166.64 at 2315 GMT. The S&P/ASX 200 index         was down 0.26
percent or 15.09 points at 5746.3.
    The NZX said it "experienced issues with its trading system
and FIX gateway connections" that required a restart of the
system, delaying the open. Traders expect lower volumes on the
bourse over the day as a result.
