Correct, I worked around the issue for gnucap, the electicity bundle
includes the gnucap binary. I forgot to do the same with gnuchess.

OK, that's a bug in my bundle script, the activities relying on another
activy's code miss the skin images.

chess won't work anyway since the binary is not there.
Tuxpaint is irrelevant here, it's a wrapper over the tuxpaint activity,
we just fork and start it but it's not sugar compliant and it rely on
tuxpaint being available from the underlying distro.

Yes, crane also, I could easily fix these by increasing the steps to
move each objects. Don't know yet how to make this in a clean, easy to
maintain way.

Yes, we are aware of this. I saw the process to create one is better
explained on the olpc wiki. I'll try to sugarize it soon.
