      When an app is installed to device using adb push, the app must restart on first launch.

      This is not a regression (tested in 1.8.1+).

      This may be an Android bug according to the log (attached):

      Android issue 2373 detected (missing intent CATEGORY_LAUNCHER or FLAG_ACTIVITY_RESET_TASK_IF_NEEDED), restarting app.

      This issue also intermittently affects the 3.X and 4.X emulators on regular launch (see linked issue).

      Steps to Reproduce:

      1. Create a new project.
      2. Package app or build to emulator to obtain the app.apk.
      3. In the terminal, push apk to device using command (apk name may vary):

      adb push NewProject.apk /sdcard/

      4. Navigate to app apk in device file system (i.e., Astro).
      5. Click on the apk, press install, press open/run app.

      Expected Result:

      App should run without error.

      Actual Result:

      App force restarts on first run, but runs correctly on future launches.
