In more or less recent 0.92, it works fine for me (doesn't fail and
can't reproduce #3013)
in that case, what do you think about having stability levels for activities,
ie, if people prefer stable versions, they will use them all time. But,
developer is free to relese development/testing versions as frequently
as he prefer to let some users a chance to test them (by following the
same launching scenario if only addition is explicitly allowing run

sugar should not restrict doers creating such activities (especially
when it makes sence like in a la Journal activities). In any other cases

that case right now, eg, we have resume-by-default but we have the Home
view when users can start spaming journal by new jobjects).
