Stopping Etoys from Sugar frame does not work

         Key: SQ-233
         URL: http://tracker.immuexa.com/browse/SQ-233
     Project: squeakland
        Type: Bug
  Components: etoys-sugar  
    Reporter: Bert Freudenberg
    Priority: Eventual
     Fix For: All New Issues

Downstream bug report: http://dev.sugarlabs.org/ticket/571

If Etoys is not the current activity, it does not immediately respond to a window close request sent by the frame. To reproduce:
- Launch Etoys
- Switch to Journal (alt-tab)
- Activate Frame (alt-shift-f)
- From Frame Etoys menu, select Stop. Notice that Etoys icon wrongly remains
- switch back to Etoys. Notice it starts saving and stopping only now.

Likely cause is that the window close event is not processed while Etoys is deactivated (by the Sugar D-Bus activate() call). Only once Etoys is activated again, the event is received and then the saving and exit is performed.

This should eventually be fixed but I'd not consider it critical, stopping an activity while it is inactive is not a common operation.
