orientation extension

It doesn't seem to be "orientation" but take a look at it anyway, because what I get is 4 entries (yes! it's working now, but more on that below) all with the same title (the shell script name) - usability issue
config.xml
Spoiler:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<extension>
<information>
<name>Orientation</name>
<version>1.0</version>
<author>Yifan Lu</author>
<id>orientation</id>
</information>
<menus>
<menu type="json">menu.json</menu>
</menus>
</extension>

menu.json
Spoiler:

{
"items": [
{
"name": "Orientation",
"priority": 5,
"items": [
{"name": "Portrait", "priority": 0, "action": "bin/setorientation.sh", "params": "U"},
{"name": "Portrait Inverted", "priority": 1, "action": "bin/setorientation.sh", "params": "D"},
{"name": "Landscape Left", "priority": 2, "action": "bin/setorientation.sh", "params": "L"},
{"name": "Landscape Right", "priority": 3, "action": "bin/setorientation.sh", "params": "R"}
]
}
]
}

In swapping some sub-folders out and back in the launcher stopped crashing, so unfortunately I can't reproduce this crash anymore. However, now when all extensions are included the launcher menu wrongly shows just your helper entries, so I'm thinking that I should be able to identify the bad guy anyhow. Will continue swapping in/out tomorrow.

A usability issue: Your 6 helper entries fill up exactly one page here, so if I try scrolling that page to look for more (non-existent in this case) entries I always end up starting one the 6 entries by mistake. I can't tell due to previous issue, but will it show scrollbars or allow scrolling when more than a pagefull of extensions is available?
