Good to hear you've narrowed it down. I'll probably have to apply
similar patches on the OLPC F11 Sugar :-)

That's weird. On the 8.2.1 XO OS release, the process is skips step
6&7. The "downloading" message in Browse.xo does mention
"Activity+Backup" (I tweaked the "apparent" filename that browse
downloads to get that msg), but after that the Journal has only added
the entry you want.

Your expectations are right, and I think you are seeing another bug in
the Browse.xo -> Journal interop.
