I believe the symptom has to do with the presence of multiple windows by 
an Activity.  Sugar starts the initial window - if in time certain 
things do not happen in that window, the "failed to start" message 
eventually gets displayed.  But if in the meantime the Activity is 
proceeding in ANOTHER window (e.g., screen) , the eventual message in 
the initial window is misleading.
