13.1.0 build 32 for XO-4 released

This build is basically usable.  Graphics glitches still exist, as the
video driver has not been updated yet.  The Record activity can now record
audio on XO-4, although Scratch cannot.

If you are working with collaboration with this XO-4 build you should turn
off automatic power management in Sugar.  The disabling of Wake on LAN
support causes the wifi card is powered down every suspend cycle, and
therefore cannot sense if another user does something while the first XO
aggressively suspends.

I saw a case where the 8787 card in a XO-4 C1 claimed to be busy (as seen
by "iwlist scan") and could not scan or associate to an AP until
NetworkManager was shutdown & restarted.  This may have caused due to
disconnecting from one AP to connect to another, but nothing obvious was
seen in /var/log/messages to explain the situation.
