Dialog Theme problem when using dev option "Immediatly destroy activities"

 'm a little lost here... i got some wired behaviour when i enable the
above option.
I guess the problem is about recreating the dialog especially the
activity behind the dialog.

I did the following:
1. open an activity with dialog theme (OK)
2. obscuring the dialog activity with a fullscreen child activity so
it gets destroyed (OK)
3. moving back to the dialog activity (ERROR)

The dialog activity creates just fine but there seems to be a problem
in recreating
the activity behind the dialog activity. It doesn't mater if it's the
homescreen or for example
maps or calculator. The symptoms are always the same.

If i turn "Show Background" on it shows the No-Activity pattern behind
the dialog.

The debugger output suggests that there is some heavy creation/
deletion going on:

Some programs provide a little more output (Here Maps) but obviously
it runs in circles:

1. who should close the activity started by a PICK action once the item is picked?

I have the following code and the activity that displays notes is not
closing after picking an item. Do I need to explicitly close this
activity??

Thanks for your help
Satya

public static void invokePick(Activity activity)
{
  Intent pickIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK);
  pickIntent.setData(Uri.parse("content://com.google.provider.NotePad/notes"));
  activity.startActivityForResult(pickIntent, 1);
}

and my onActivityResult looks like

protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode
                ,int resultCode
                ,Intent outputIntent)
{
     super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, outputIntent);
     // do something with the outputIntent
}
