 Indeed. I debugged and found the problem. The non-rainbow code path
 apparently does not set the search path to the bundle's bin/ directory, so
 the activity executable is not found.

 A workaround is to specify "bin/activity-executable" as cmd line in the
 activity.info file. Tomeu is looking into a proper fix.
