AutoCompleteTextView and ArrayAdapter with async update

 I have an AutoCompleteTextView using an ArrayAdapter for its data.  I
am trying to asynchronously update the ArrayAdapter, but if there is
text typed into the AutoCompleteTextView the ArrayAdapter will not
update until the text in the AutoCompleteTextView changes.

for example;

actv = AutoCompleteTextView
aa = ArrayAdapter

1) start the application
2) getCount on aa = 0
3) add on aa
4) getCount on aa = 1
5) type "r" into actv
6) getCount on aa = 1
7) add on aa
8) getCount on aa = 1
9) add on aa
10) getCount on aa = 1
11) type "e" into actv
12) getCount on aa = 3

How can I force an update of the data?  I am doing an async update
because I am getting the values to auto complete from a REST call.  I
even tested this manually just by adding two buttons to the Activity
along with the ACTV (one to show me the count and one to add an item).

I tried notifyDataSetChanged on the ArrayAdapter, but that doesn't
seem to do anything.

2. Custom address fields when switching from Palm OS to Android

I'm completely new to Android OS.  Is there a clean way to transfer
Palm OS address data fields, including "custom" fields, to Android?

I'm running Palm Desktop 6.2 on Win XP.  I can export in these

Address Book (.aba)
Comma Separated (.csv)
Tab delimited (.tab)

Thanks in advance!
