Activity crashes when using

If a newcomer to Sugar follows the instructions at to
use Albert Calahan's from a precompiled binary, lots of
funny things happen. crashes with BadWindow at apparently random times -- some of the
crashes can be tracked down to specific conditions, like opening the
activity right after Sugar has started.

The solution is to grab the src and recompile. That .so is likely old.

I added a rough note in the wiki indicating that a build from src is
needed, but the overall page needs a reorg. Posting here to feed
google, increase awareness, and in case anyone has the time &
motivation to tidyup the wiki...
