Matching SDK version to code? NPE Bug in WebView?

   I wrote an app that, among other things,  renders feed articles  
using WebView. Now I get error reports that seem to originate in  

-- NewsRob Version: 1.7.0/170
-- Android Version: sdk=2, release=1.1, inc=128600
-- Thread State: RUNNABLE
-- Stacktrace:
at android.webkit.CacheManager$

   I've got another report with the same content, but a different  
incremental version of the sdk (126986). Probably one from the US and  
one from the UK.

   So now I would love to know why the code blows up and if there is  
anything I can do about it. And with the source files and line numbers  
I felt in good shape to so. If only I could match them to the public  
code repositories ;-(

   Finding the file was easy: ;a=tree;f=core/java/android/webkit;h=a133d1c04dede353611f23bc37d04a9ff7316b8d;hb=HEAD

   But then "history" returns the following: ;a=history;f=core/java/android/webkit/;h=d12940d04f41e3f4450da79738714a6a8c7739e6;hb=HEAD
2008-12-18      The Android Open...     Code drop from //branches/ 
2008-10-21      The Android Open...     Initial Contribution android-1.0        

   None of these seem to simply match the version information returned  
by Build.VERSION.

   Furthermore none of these seem to match the line no from the  
stracktrace. It says method "run" in In both  
versions line 391 is not in a run method ;-(

   So, how to match stacktraces to code?

1. Can we do QVGA LCD with Android?

Dear all,

It is really worth that we do QVGA LCD with Android or not?

So far, i've never found the Android phone with QVGA LCD on MKT while
many rumours around this configuraion.

Furthermore, a lesson learning from KOGAN for Agora phone(original LCD
is QVGA) and delayed definitely and official excuse is QVGA
resolution. But i don't know what's the exact reason?

So who can tell me
1. what's the problem we will meet with Android+QVGA LCD?
2. what's the attitude from google for QVGA LCD under Android phone,
while QVGA was said to be supported from Google?

If QVGA is not recommended to be with Android, why there is no formal
info from Google to avoid any unvaluable try on this LCD?


2. How to properly pass MotionEvent to a worker thread

Yes, you need to copy the motion event.  The system owns the one it hands
you, and will recycle it when you return.
