About the same time (starting just before SugarCamp) the Gnome people
hacked heavily on jhbuild and thus broke sugar-jhbuild (*). I'm slowly
recovering now and started fixing sugar-jhbuild.

You're probably talking about sugar-emulator and thus Xephyr (sorry if
it sounds like nitpicking, but it's an important distinction because it
needs to be fixed in a different module with different maintainers).
This is Xephyr bug #19365  / Sugarlabs bug #342 . It's a major
problem to several people, but nobody stepped up to fix it yet. It's a
major change and at least I don't has enough time to do it. Maybe we
should start collecting money and announce a bounty (**)...

Using somewhat yes (minimal activity testing). Successfully would not be
the right word for it, though.

Try running sugar as a session i.e. instead of Gnome, not inside Gnome.
(*) The error mentioned above is our fault, though. We added
sugar-update-control without trying to build it on a pristine system.
(**) With a condition that it has been merged upstream, of course -
otherwise it would bitrot like the old fix.
