throws "Received authentication challenge is null"

 I am using HttpURLConnection to send a GET request to a server. Upon
reading the response code, the Android implementation of
HttpURLConnection.doRequestInternal() throws an exception:

" Received authentication challenge is null"

I don't even get what the error is trying to tell me. I write an OAuth
param string to the Authorization header, but this works fine on other
occasions. There is nothing peculiar about my request apart from that.

Any idea what this means, what is causing this and how to get around
it? This works fine with Sun's Java implementation, so I guess it's a
problem with Apache Harmony?

2. getFromLocationName Service Not Available

Hey hey,

I'm getting problems with getFromLocationName. Every time I run it, it
stalls at the line:

    List<Address> addresses = geocoder.getFromLocationName("Megazone
Leicester, Leicester, LE1 3HS, UK", 1);

with a LogCat Error of: Service Not Available
        at android.location.Geocoder.getFromLocationName(

I've had a look around and it seems to be a bug, but can anyone verify
it, as some people seem to have it working fine.

        Geocoder geocoder = new Geocoder(this);
        List<Address> addresses =
geocoder.getFromLocationName("Megazone Leicester, Leicester, LE1 3HS,
UK", 1);
                Address SiteAddress = addresses.get(0);
        Double geoLat = SiteAddress.getLatitude() * 1E6;
        Double geoLng = SiteAddress.getLongitude() * 1E6;
        GeoPoint point = new GeoPoint(geoLat.intValue(), geoLng.intValue());

Ta muchly :-)
