Unfortunately this is an intended behaviour for etoys – you have to  
first create a new project (modifying the default start up environment  
or just quitting is not enough) before it will start state saving to  
Journal. Though you can argue this is a feature not a bug (etoys saves  
are quite slow, and this behaviour reduces wasting nand space), it is  
at least unexpected behaviour for Sugar Activities.

For Scratch, well it's just not available properly sugarized yet –  
feel free to ping the authors and encourage them it would be a good  
thing to work on :-)
