 Replying to [comment:3 morgs]:
 > Did you enable debug logging?

 The situation has shown up only in the last month where, if the
 prerequisites for an Activity are not met, then upon launch the pulsing
 times out and vanishes, leaving behind a log of length zero.  This means
 the user has __no clue__ as to why the Activity  did not launch.

 To answer morgs - yes, debug logging is enabled on my system.  If I boot
 with the /etc/olpc-security file present, both Etoys and Scratch run, and
 leave a normal logfile behind.  If I boot with the /etc/olpc-security file
 absent, neither Etoys nor Scratch will launch - and both will leave behind
 a logfile of zero length.
