[owncloud-devel] Starting app in OC-8.0.0RC2 always redirects to the files app

Hi all, 
I am trying to get the Shorty app working in an OC-8.0.0RC2 test installation. 
I worked around a number of backwards compatibility issues according to the 
documentation at 
Now the app can be installed successfully, though I have to state "9" as the 
max OC version, why ever. 

But although the app appears to install and shows up in the apps menu I cannot 
start it. Selecting it always redirects to the "Files" app. Shipped apps can 
be started, in contrast. 
The funny thing is: I do not get *any* error whatsoever. Nothing in the http 
server error log, nothing in the owncloud log, nothing in the browser console, 
even nothing in the system log file. 

Looks like once again I need to dig through all the core code to find out what 
is broken? This is somewhat annoying, since as an app developer I do not want 
to debug the core code. 

Or does anyone have a hint for me where I could start looking? Thanks!
