Grid layout & homescreen bookmarks lost when upgrading 1.2 to1.3

When I upgraded my Keon from 1.2 to 1.3:
* The dock was empty
* App icons were not all where I left them
* Homescreen bookmarks had been deleted

I upgraded using a Geeksphone 1.3 build and opted to keep user data.

Is this unique to the Geeskphone builds?
QA Wanted - test this by doing an OTA update with a Leo device from 1.2 to 1.3.
New information...

It looks like what was actually not working was saving to the homescreen grid indexedDB database at all.

I'm unable to add bookmarks to the homescreen and if I drag apps into the dock, they're no longer there after a reboot.

This makes the phone pretty much unusable.

However, this only happens if you choose to keep user data in Geeksphone's build script. If you hose your data it starts working again.

This probably makes it Geeksphone-specific but it is extremely annoying for anyone trying to dogfood the device!
In that case, I'll remove qawanted to indicate the focus of this bug is geeksphone specific. We will do data migration testing for 1.3 at some point, so if we end up seeing this, we'll be sure to raise this as a general issue.

As of 2.6 we have a new homescreen and having these issues open is confusing. All issues will block bug 1231115 so we can use that to re-visit any of these if needed.
