After a bunch of poking around, I saw some indication that the .apk file Aptoide might simply be stuck in the wrong location. Most .apk files seem to belong in /data/app, but the .apk file for Aptoide was lying around in /data/app/incoming and /data/app/packaged. I moved one of these to /data/app (don't think it mattered which), and all of a sudden the Aptoide icon reappared in my programs list. It seems to be working normally now.

I also used this technique to repair the Yandex store, which got into the same state as Aptoide when I uninstalled and reinstalled Alien Dalvik in the process of trying to sort this issue out.
