This assumes that RunAddon() applies only to scripts, plugins, lyrics, weather which is what the code did before.

IMO we need to reconsider the existing multiple-addon support. There's a number of issues with it, primarily that once you have an add-on object you have no idea if that add-on object has other things associated with it. i.e. addon->Type() is basically useless except to tell you the particular sub-addon that you have.

I'm not sure that extending CAddon so that you know the other types would be enough to resolve the existing issues (e.g.

@ronie, @BigNoid, @Black09 needs some decent testing :)

With this change I still can't run my script via a Confluence shortcut. Perhaps there is something wrong with my addon.xml? Or have I misunderstood what this fixes?

I tested with this RPi build.

You need to check that your build actually contains the fix - I have no idea which version of XBMC OpenElec builds are being done against.

Please take this to the forums. If there's still an issue, we'll need a way to reproduce.

Sorry I should have explained that I did check that the build contains the fix before posting, see OpenELEC/

I'll take it to the forums if further discussion is required, I'll just say that I have also confirmed on Linux that the problem still exists. I compiled the Gotham branch and ran the test addon I attached to my original trac ticket 14776. I can see in the log that it still runs the service part of the add-on (
