You cannot install mameo-launcher if the GUI is up - in other words, you
pretty much cannot install mameo-launcher at all.

Attempting to install maemo-launcher when the GUI is up will cause the
currently running maemo-launcher process to be terminated - which the
device considers a fatal error (and will cause a reboot).

This then leaves the dpkg system in a screwy state.

I don't know if you can turn off the watchdog reset in this case with the
flasher or not.
