#2834: navigator.userAgent does not identify OLPC/Sugar

 Browse currently does not identify itself as OLPC or Sugar in the
 useragent string. It looks like a generic Linux browser. This is a
 regression, it worked fine in older versions.

 This breaks e.g. the Squeakland showcase
 (http://http://squeakland.org/showcase/everyone/) which needs to identify
 Sugar to download Etoys projects to the Journal. It uses
 javascript:navigator.userAgent and looks for the substring "olpc".
