That is remarkable, and worth investigating.  The Chat activity in
particular is designed to survive loss of the initiator, and has been
since the very first release.

One related issue is  http://bugs.sugarlabs.org/ticket/934 .  Once the
initiator leaves, the initiator can no longer re-join due to an issue in
the GUI.  That bug contains a patch, but it's unclear to me whether that
patch was ever applied.  Maybe Tomeu can clarify the situation.
