[Sugar-devel] Sugar-install-bundle in 13.2.5 is slooow

Hi, Sam

The script that installs these activities is run after flashing the 
laptop to provide the capabilities needed for the laptop to work with the
school server. The goal is to have each laptop in the deployment with 
identical software. In this case, the script finishes by a poweroff
command. This means the laptop will be rebooted. At least in all 
previous releases the system registers the activities in the Activities

However, I am concerned that activities installed from the school server 
will also be affected. If so, it may be fixable with a patch to the
Browse activity. Then it may be necessary for the user to reboot to 
register the activity. (Sad was the day we lost the three-finger salute!).

Obviously, the best solution is to fix the problem. The above are, at 
best, workarounds.
