Object Chooser  sugar 0.95-2  (on XO-1.5 screen)

Selecting 'OLPC root' icon appears to give the same view as selecting 
'Journal' icon.

Also a human factors difficulty - when there are more entries in Object 
Chooser than will fit on one screen, the scroll bar at the right edge is 
much too narrow.  I tried to 'click' within the scrollbar (to scroll one 
page's worth), but accidentally mispositioned the cursor (off the narrow 
scrollbar image) and my 'click' got interpreted as selecting the entry 
where the cursor had strayed.


p.s.  The above-described incident illustrates the lack within Object 
Chooser (i.e., within Sugar) of a "No I didn't want that!" facility 
[i.e., "BACK"]..  To return to where I had been when I made the 
accidental click, I had to exit the Activity (which had acted upon the 
unwanted entry); and restart that Activity;  and in Object Chooser to 
indicate the (in this case external) device I wanted to access -- and 
then wait for Object Chooser to again present its listing of that 
device's objects.
