[Sugar-devel] JS activity issues

So I wrote my first JS activity [1, 2] (although I wrote the original
XO Colors activity in JS and XML back in 2007) and will it sort of kid
of works, I have some problems:

(1) The toolbar buttons are not properly aligned vertically. From my
web browser, the activity button is properly aligned, but the "new"
button I added is offset down by about 25 pixels. In Sugar (latest
sugar-build running on F19), the activity button is offset down and
the "new" button is properly aligned.

(2) Somewhere along the line, my activity does not launch/close
properly: a gray circle on the frame (always a bad sign) along with my
ever-flashing activity icon.  Empty activity log file.

Lots of this in shell.log
1373753530.754283 DEBUG gwebsockets: Got data, length 52
1373753530.754836 DEBUG gwebsockets: Text message {"method":"activity.close","id

Any pointers would be appreciated.
