I've fixed this in git.  If the activity does not specify the correct
icon, it will not show up in the activity icon area on the frame, and
you will get a nice printed message in the logs about the activity
missing an icon.

If you want to set an icon, you need to add the "icon = <name>" tag in
the .activity file, _without_ the extension, since the icon is assumed
to be an SVG file.  You'll also need to have some specific classes in
the CSS for the SVG file, otherwise it won't show correctly in sugar.


  <style type="text/css">
    .shape-and-fill {fill: green; stroke: red}
    .fill {fill: green; stroke: green;}
    .shape {fill: red; stroke: red;}

Your SVG shape objects need to be subclasses of one of these three
