Thanks, it is now easier to try to reproduce it (I have a spare N900
that can be reflashed).

A possibility is that the the just installed Python loader
(/usr/lib/hildon-desktop/loaders/libpythonpluginloader.so) only
becomes active when hildon-desktop is restarted (which I suppose only
occurs when the device is rebooted).

If that's the case, I don't know a way to force hildon-desktop to
detect the new loader. Also it will probably happen only when
hildon-desktop-python-loader is first installed, other applets
installed after (or the same applet being reinstalled) will not show
the problem.

Can some Hildon Desktop developer confirm this is the case? And if so,
is there any way of avoiding a reboot (e.g. by sending some signal to
the hildon-desktop process maybe?)
