No, #2477 would prevent etoys from even starting. Apparently this is
indeed what happens, if you just press the resume button when showing
an etoys entry in the journal (that round button with a square in the
tool bar) then etoys does not start. Tonight's next build should have
that fixed, or patch the file /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/sugar/
activity/activityfactory.py yourself as in the ticket.
Anyway, your find is indeed an etoys bug. It appears as if the
clipboard thinks that Etoys is the default activity for handling PNG
files. And it then of course runs Etoys with that argument ... never
thought of that. We then try to load that png file as project which
fails of course.
We should check the mime-type when resuming a journal entry, and if
it is not a squeak project, invoke the drop handler instead I guess,
so we open the the file. Presumably we want to do that in a newly
