 i, I just replied to the bug, but should say something here as well --

This is intentional behavior, since launching a single task activity means
bringing it to the foreground, the stack is cleared so it can always receive
the new intent. So for example Browser, which is one of the few single task
activities -- if it is launched from somewhere with a new URI the root
activity needs to be brought foreground to display it.

The solution is simple: don't use single task. There are very very few
places where this is actually appropriate, and those few cases are for this
kind of special case behavior for the browser.

2. Just got notice of my first chargeback, any other devs getting them?

This sucks!

I hope that at least the chargeback is tied to your Google Checkout
sales list so that the customers has the copy of your app uninstalled
from his/her phone.

But don't hit on the customer too much. You never know. I'm not sure
how fraudelent charges are handled by the CC companies. But it may be
that the actual 'customer' had his/her credit card stolen and disputed
all charges since a given date. This may then have included the
purchase of your game by the thief.

If not, just disputing a $0.99 charge like this... what a
cheapskate :=)
