 A static field which was initialized becomes null at some point.
Can it be because that class was unloaded and loaded again?

 More likely it's because your process was killed.

FWIW, a class cannot be unloaded unless all classes in the same class
loader can be unloaded.  It all stays or it all goes.

This is sufficiently unlikely in an Android application that class
unloading has not been implemented, and is very, very low on the
planned feature list.

1. Application storage data growing

I am trying to understand why my app's data storage is growing.  When
looking at system settings / application info there are statistics
showing for Storage.  I see my Application size, but there is also a
Data section that continues to grow gradually from continually usage.
How can I find out what exactly is stored there and to review it to
determine what my app is doing that would cause the growth?  Are there
any utilities I can run on the G1 to explore that data area?


2. "Stuck" SMS message

I went to this URL

Typed in my UK mobile number and got a text from Google with a link to

However when I tried to open that message in my default SMS client (chomp)
it opened a new blank message instead.

I cleared the notification, looked in my SMSs and that message just isn't
anywhere in the list.

Whenever I get a new SMS now, I get a notification from chompSMS that I have
two new messages - and two do show up, the real message, and this mystery
message from Google.

Rinse and repeat.

The rogue SMS doesn't appear in the Android Messaging application either. I
can't work out how to switch back to that for incoming SMS notifications
either, to see if that exhibits the same issue when I receive a message.

I upgraded chomp to the latest version a couple of days ago to see if that
fixed anything (it didn't)

Any suggestions?
