OptionMenu layout bug when using Dialog theme?

I did an Android application which just has an AutoCompleteTextView.
The Activity containing the AutoCompleteTextView uses the Dialog theme
This Activity also has an options menu. But when you press the options
menu button the menu is displayed right below the AutoCompleteTextView
which is somewhere in the middle of the screen, not at the bottom.
I found no way to display the options menu at the bottom of the
screen. Is this a bug?

 Known bug which I think we fixed in Cupcake. Note that having a menu
for a dialog is very weird anyway.

OptionMenu layout bug when using Dialog theme?

 The AutoCompleteTextView is to build something like a desktop search
(Apps, Music, Contacts etc).
But I also need a way to jump into the settings dialog. Therefore I
need an options menu on a dialog style activity. Looks pretty nice ;-)

1. Search contact by phonetic input

I am working on a phone dialer application.
I found that the search widget can search Chinese contact by Pinyin.
I would do the similar things. When I tried to read the contact
StructuredName.PHONETIC_FAMILY_NAME. However, all of them are null.
I want to know how can I get the phonetic name of them?
Or is there any class can convert a Chinese String to Pinyin format?

Thank you very much in advance.
