Wow. Why isn't the 1.5 emulator working...

 After weeks of trying to get my service to run on boot & an interval
via AlarmManager I finally found out the problem. Can anybody help me?

If my workspace is for sdk 1.5, the service NEVER RUNS ONCE.
If my workspace is for sdk 1.0, USING THE 1.0 EMULATOR, NOT THE 1.5
EMULATOR, it works perfectly.

Is this a known bug? Why is it only working on the old SDK? Is there
an additional permission I need?

BOOT_COMPLETED events and AlarmManager definitely work on Android 1.5. I
have the code to prove it: 

(click on Source Code, look in the ZIP file for the SystemServices/Alarm

If you want, compare your implementation with mine, and report back what
difference you think may explain the behavior -- that would get us a lot
closer to determining if this is a "known bug".

2. Displaying Animated GIF using Movie

We have created an animated GIF for our splash screen. It has about
70+ frames. The size of the GIF file is approx. 500KB. We are using
the Movie object as suggested in the samples to render the GIF and
animate it. However the images are all skewed on the screen and
nothing is clearly visible. When we open the GIF using IE or any image
viewer it is able to animate properly. Any ideas what can be the
issue? Has anyone else faced this problem?
