In the development versions, activities that fail to start after some  
amount of time should be reaped automatically by Sugar:


Unless your actual processes are getting stuck (in which case you can  
sigkill them), there's nothing particularly bad about the pulsating  
icon being stuck; it's just a visual annoyance. You could crank the  
"activity failed" reaping timeout down significantly in your Sugar  
checkout while doing development.
