1 more case I saw today: (being tight on time and conducting a
training session I only attempted this once and didn't attempt to
reproduce, so I'm making a few assumptions here...)

When connected to a network without a school server (i.e. using salut
collaboration), if one of the machines is sleeping while another
machine shares an activity with the neighbourhood, upon wakeup that
first machine won't see the shared activity and hence cannot join.

I waited about a minute before giving up..maybe it just takes some
more time, but I feel that we need to do some serious testing here.
With gabble as well.
