hmm. I'm not sure. In the later development builds, there is a control
panel which can change be used to do this, so there must be a way to do
it without deleting all those files.

Try this. It worked for me on joyride 265, which has the control panel,
but I didn't use it.

Change the /home/olpc/.sugar/default/config file, setting the nick to
whatever you want. Go back to the home view and restart X. (press ctrl
alt erase) Now, the nick of your laptop should be whatever you set it to
be in that file. Now try rebooting, and see if it has stuck.
