Yes, the hostname step is needed for 0.5.2 (the install instructions
do mention it ;-) )

I am really intrigued with this problem. I'll try to reproduce it.

Can you send me the moodle logs - as follows

 - /var/log/moodle/cron.log.*
 - /var/log/httpd/error.log.*

Did this one work? Also - do all the machines have the Browse.xo
version that has the magic stuff to auto-login to moodle?

- What version of the XO software do yo have?
- Did you look inside of Moodle for the 'Backup'? To do this...
  1 - login to moodle with the 'admin' access
  2 - in the admin options (on the left) go to users->accounts->browse
  3 - select a user
  4 - select the 'backup' tab
  ... you should see properly encoded journal
- I assume you've installed the 'fonts-chinese' package?
