HTC Magic, is PhoneNumberUtils.PAUSE different?

 I am getting reports that the in the HTC Magic the character that
represents the pause in a dial string is different than in the Google
build of cupcake. In the SDK 1.5 pre-release, the pause is given by a
','. Apparently, in the HTC magic, the pause is given by a 'p'.
Unfortunately, I don't currently have the means to test this. Does
anyone know if the PhoneNumberUtils.PAUSE member in the HTC magic
build reflects this change? Have any other functions in
PhoneNumberUtils changed in order to support this?

Thank you,

 The Rogers HTC Magic phone is using the 'p' as a pause, but it seems
they haven't changed the PhoneNumberUtils.PAUSE to reflect this. This
is rather unfortunate, because it makes the Rogers build non-standard
and my app breaks. I would hope in the future there are no more
deviations of the standard SDK, otherwise, developing for the Android
platform will become harder.

1. how to find out the percentage of memory used by each process in the android

There is lots of memory sharing between processes, so this is actually a
really hard thing to determine.  For development purposes, the "procrank"
command is the most common tool to use.  The last two columns of memory
usage are the most interesting ones: the last one is the memory owned
exclusively by that process, and the second to the last is that plus the
shared memory weighted by how many processes are sharing each page.

Note that this command is not part of the SDK, and for format of its output
tends to change, so it should only be used for development purposes.

For even more detail specifically about Java processes, you can use "adb
shell dumpsys memoryinfo"

2. Best Practice for overriding both Theme and Theme.Dialog correctly in an app?

I use themes in my apps, which generally just extend android:Theme and
then set a bunch of styles.

I use dialogs made from layouts, but since I set the theme for the
application, they have inherited all of the regular styles and no
longer carry a border, etc.

My question is:  How do I say, "I want everything to use this theme
which extends Theme, except dialogs, which should use this other theme
that extends Theme.Dialog"  ?  It seems like that's how things work by
default but when you set the theme to your own, you lose the dialog

Thanks for any help!
