Yup, have spent some minutes on this and this approach indeed should
work. It should be easily reproducible anywhere by inserting a "import
time; time.sleep(10)" as the first line in an activity's write_file
method. The shell will wait until all activities have saved their
state before actually shutting down.

As James said, the cursor needs to be set in the appropriate window,
in this case it's the desktop window which is accessible by:

from jarabe.desktop import homewindow

Seems to work fine here.
