DCHP Options in Android 2.0

 It appears that only a few basic options are enabled in Android 2.0.
Is this so?  I just bought a Droid and am having trouble connecting it
to my work wifi network (it connects OK at home).

We are using a Mikrotik PowerRouter 732 with RouterOS 3.x to issue
DHCP.  For our clients on our VLANs to find their way outside, we
issue a static route with DHCP.  The Mikrotik unit 'pushes' this onto
all of our clients, until I started using the Droid.  It doesn't seem
to take.  I can connect to the network, get an IP address, but all
Internet traffic disappears at the first router.

Mikrotik uses a non-standard option, 249, which is in the private
range to issue this route.  I've tried putting a static route into our
core switch, but have not seen success with that method yet.

 Did you try to assign a static ip to Droid ?

1. Landscape / Portrait Orientation Pending Intent?

We have created an AppWidget that takes user inputted text into an
EditText and displays a calculated amount of text inside a TextView on
the Home Screen. We calculate the amount of text based on the
AppWidgetInfo.minWidth, minHeight attributes. We do this to simulate
scrolling; we cut up the user-inputted text into chunks that will fit
into the widget and swap them based on button clicks.

When we save the widget with the device in Landscape mode, it
calculates the appropriate amount of text for Landscape mode and
displays it in the widget. The problem is when the user changes
orientation of the device to Portrait mode (without opening the widget
and resaving the text), the calculated amount of text for Landscape
mode is still displayed. This also happens in the vice versa case (the
user is in Portrait and saves, etc.)

How can we tell our AppWidget to recalculate the amount of text
displayed on screen orientation change? Is this possible? How would
you solve this problem?


2. Using ResolverActivity as a activity-alias

Due to bug http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=6579 is
it safe to put this into my AndroidManifest.xml file?:

  <!-- Below is a workaround due to the Market bug
http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=6579 -->
    android:targetActivity=".PickImages" android:exported="true"/>

The ResolverActivity is a private class and i'm very hesitant to use
it. However, my app defines two activities with action=MAIN and
category=LAUNCHER and because of bug 6579, the Market-app crashes when
'Open' is selected.

I already have one known negative comment about this (although it's
not my app that crashes) and I try to avoid any more of these ;-)

Question is:
Can i use ResolverActivity (in this way)?
