Hers (full):

Mine (not full):

Her /home/olpc/ is actually smaller than mine (350MB vs 435MB)

My theory is this: I have run olpc-update more often on my machine, so  
there are fewer differences between the active OS and the fallback  
one.  On hers, for instance, the fallback OS still has /usr/share/ 
activities/ with a full set of G1G1 2007 activities while mine doesn't.

If my theory is correct, then maybe she can run olpc-update to go back  
to something just prior to 767 and then forward to 767 again... does  
olpc-update let you go backwards?
