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?
