Out of memory exception on setting wallpaper

 getWallpaper() is not leaking. The default Home app is using it and
does not experience out of memory errors because of that.

I am more than willing to fix any existing memory leak in the
framework (and I did several times) or in the default apps (and I did
several times) but developers should really stop assuming that out of
memory errors are always caused by the framework. It is *very* easy
for an application to leak or simply to use too much memory.

1. Creating new calendar event not setting OnActivityResult params

I am trying to use the built-in Calendar Activity to create a new

The code i use to start a new calendar event activity is below.

 Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_EDIT);
startActivityForResult(intent, PICK_OR_CREATE_EVENT);

 The problem i am having is that the OnActivityResult method called
after saving the event has a resultcode of Activity.CANCELLED even
though the Save button was clicked and a new event was created. Also,
the Intent data param is null, which should have been the Uri to the
newly created event.

Does anyone know why the OnActivityResult behaves this way?
