WallpaperManager crashes when phone is unlocked

I have received error report related with my app  (a wallpaper changer) .
The app sets some wallpapers, but when user makes the screen sleep and
unlock it, the default wallpaper is shown.

It's happening on a HTC EVO.

Of course, the image I'm using can be big and can be doing things difficult
to Wallpaper Manager  (I think is very very  far from "Bitmap Size=12535KB"
that I can see in the logs)

The ask is, why only when unlocked phone?

Here are the logs:

1. Intercepting Calls


I have a question. Is there any support in Android's SDK for
intercepting calls? for example, if I wanted to do something
interesting when they call a particular number...

Thank you


2. G1 download stats

Yesterday AndAppStore.com saw a doubling of direct-to-phone downloads 
from G1s' which means we are seeing more than one in three downloads are 
being done directly to the users G1.

So if you're only making .zips available, or you aren't using the right 
MIME type, it might be worth updating your downloads.
