 Write is unusable as no changes are saved. I have never succeeded in
 saving anything in Write on this install.

 Write 94 starts OK and text can be entered. Write will perform as expected
 until I attempt to rename the file.

 Start Write, put cursor in Activity tab, "rename file" field, and attempt
 to rename, Write collapses after a variable delay, or as soon as the
 cursor is moved onto the "page". I have been been careful to use only
 ASCII characters.

 For a test of minimum "load", attempt to rename file to ab, with no text
 in the page. Do '''no''' further keystrokes, Write collapses after a
 variable delay of 1 to 10 seconds.

 Actually closing Write, with "original" file-name "Write Activity" is as
 expected, except that resume opens an empty page. Where "Write Activity,
 resume" appears in Home View, Write opens with a blank page.

 Does behavior persist after restart and yum update? Yes.
 Have I seen the "Keep error" message? Seen once, I had attempted to Insert
 Image, but generally Write collapses without warning.

 == Intermittent ==

 It has been intermittent whether an empty "Write Activity" is seen in the

 There is "resistance" to putting the cursor in Activity tab, rename file
 field, possibly the mouse click is not correctly recognized.

 I have repeated tests with two keyboards (USB + PS/2) and two (USB) mice.
 PS/2 keyboard resulted in greater sense of resistance.

 == Environment is ==

 Hard drive install of Fedora-Live-Xfce-x86_64-20-TC2
 yum install @Sugar Desktop
 with Sugar-session running

 Attached Activity log and shell log.
