No, missing activities will not cause this symptom.

I agree with Walter.  We need to diagnose together what is happening,
and messages will help with that.  Are there any messages?  If so,
copy and paste them into mail.

Also check the directory ~/.sugar/default/logs for files that may
explain the cause of the premature exit.

You might also contact the ArchLinux packager for Sugar and check for
ArchLinux bug reports listed against the package.  Sugar Labs doesn't
provide these packages, and as Sugar works without this symptom in other
distributions it is most likely that your problem is relating to
ArchLinux packaging.
