This seems to be related to a Sugar bug (aslroot brought this to my attention; I'll track down which one) regarding activities that share a mime type that has been fixed in Sugar 0.88 (hence it didn't show up in my testing). I don't know that there is a fix possible other than either upgrading to a newer Sugar (I've marked the activity as 0.88 only for the time being) or to remove the mimetype, which would be a disservice to those using more recent versions of Sugar. We could possibly backport a patch to Sugar 0,84 with the intention of getting the problem addressed on the machines that are about to have 0.84 installed (the XO 1.5s, .py and .uy).

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Ticket #1394 has a patch to fix the mimetype problem. Not clear that there is much more I can do with the activity itself.
