Assuming the bug is not gone in 258, #4763 will cause multiple
instances of the activity to be open for 3. I suspect the same bug
might also be causing problems with access point activation, we really
need to get it fixed.

Abiword has been completely removed in 257. Looks like uwog ChangeLog
is missing the footers, maybe that's the issue. Can we publish the
joyride logs so that these problems are more easily catched?

Yeah, looks like. Probably Record needs to use
$SUGAR_ACTIVITY_ROOT/instance (except for images maybe).

This has been changed to get_bundle_id in sugar some weeks ago.

I'll have to look into this one.
