Ah, that was my problem indeed. Thank a lot for enlightening me!

I think it might help to document this in a README.Debian, even though it's a 
upstream feature/change. Reasoning: many users will know sugar from the 
install currently deployed by OLPC, which has the old activity launcher 
style. Basically just put the text I quoted above into a README would be very 
fine. Or NEWS.Debian ;)

Okay... I think we have some sugar upstreams reading these bugreports now 
too :-) Hi!
