To recap, I make a datastore entry in my activity.  The saved file is a tar
file and saved with tar mime-type.

I just tried os360b on an xo-1.

The datatstore entry, when copied via drag and drop to the usb stick is not
renamed, and keeps its sugar icon.  That's great!

However, when I try to open that file off of the usb stick within the
activity with an object chooser, the activity has some problems.

I check to see if the file_path ends in gtar or tar (presumably assigned by
the datastore mime-type?) and some debugging tells me it does not.  Instead
I get a path /home/olpc/.sugar/default/data/rawobject3dkJYR

Please let me know how I can help debug.
