Changes (by Quozl):

  * owner:  => dsd
  * next_action:  never set => review
  * component:  not assigned => sugar
  * version:  not specified => 1.5 Software Build os64 aka 10.1.0


 This was an upstream change between Sugar 0.82 and Sugar 0.84, but I've
 not found a reference to it yet, after looking through each change.  I'm
 not sure it was intentional, but I think it relates to Journal now being
 an activity.

 The sequence the shell passes through:

  * zoom_level is initially ZOOM_HOME, aka F3,
  * a new window is detected as a result of the activity starting, which
 sets zoom_level to ZOOM_ACTIVITY, aka F4,
  * the activity terminates, but zoom_level is left unchanged, so the next
 window in the stack is made visible, which is the Journal.

 Alternate reproducer of the same symptom:
  * be in Home view,
  * start Stop Watch,
  * return to Home view,
  * start Measure,
  * quit Measure,
  * result is that Stop Watch is now visible, not the Home view.

 This change in behaviour might also result in less "lost activities", once
 a user learns how to quit an activity.
