App Widget does not appear in the widget list on Honeycomb devices until Launcher is restarted

It seems like the default launcher in Android 3 (Honeycomb) has a bug. It doesn’t seem to refresh the widget list when you install a new application. When you restart the launcher (or restart the whole tablet) the widget will be there, as it should be. Seems like the widget list there is cached, while on earlier versions of Android, and in other launchers this is not the case.

    I’ve marked my application with android:installLocation="internalOnly"
    Here’s the widget registration in the manifest:

        <receiver android:name=".BatteryWidget" android:label="@string/widget_name">
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_UPDATE" />
            </intent-filter>
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="org.flexlabs.action.BATTERY_UPDATED" />
                <action android:name="org.flexlabs.action.dualbattery.SETTINGS_UPDATED" />
            </intent-filter>
            <meta-data android:name="android.appwidget.provider" android:resource="@xml/widget_info" />
        </receiver>
    

    Please help?
