1. MyLocationOverlay blocks my Activity

Dear all,

I am facing a strange issu :

as soon as I try to instanciate a new MyLocationOverlay, my
application is blocked.

here is my code snippet

        mapViewFromXML = (MyMapView) this.findViewById(;
         mylocation = new MyLocationOverlay(this, mapViewFromXML);

And here is my log cat =

If I remove the instanciation then every thing is going fine (clear
but empty mapview). Did I do something wrong ?

Thanks for your help.
