This seems to be http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/6739 -- the symptom of
"Activity launched, but claims to be Private" matches exactly, and I've
seen this on both Write and Read.  This is the bug I mentioned in the
meeting as not being limited to Read.  We should check Walter's logs to
confirm:  if it is this bug, we'll see:

   1206139420.701489 DEBUG root: Failed to join activity:  [...]

in the Chat.log.  Please attach the .tar.bz2 created by running
"olpc-netlog" to #6739, and I'll take a look.

I don't know whether this is a regression -- the current theory in the
bug is that we're simply not receiving packets from the network.  I'll
be testing that theory by posting a log of network traffic during a
failure today.

- Chris.
