This is the expected behavior. You need the Python loader (provided by
the hildon-desktop-python-loader) installed *and* loaded in order to
have Python applets recognized. The problem (as I mentioned on the
other message) is probably that the hildon-desktop process is not
being aware of the new loader until it is restarted.

A possible test case (which I cannot test ATM) is:

1) apt-get remove hildon-desktop-python-loader
2) Restart N900
3) apt-get install hildon-desktop-python-loader
4) Install some Python applet

The let us know if the applet is shown or not.
