 I can't help you off-hand with the problem, but for what it's worth
preferences really aren't intended to be used with a dialog theme.  Actually
I would stay away from the dialog theme for all but very simple things (like
alerts), since the border takes so much space away from your UI.

Of course in general I don't like dialogs. :)

The thing is that if I don't use the dialog theme, the preference
screen would cover my entire view and Android will eventually destroy
it (I've seen this already). So I'm pretty much forced to use the
dialog theme - I don't like it either :(

That is - Android will destroy the activity, which started the
preference activity because it's view is completely covered by the
child activity's view.

Yes, I understand that - the thing is that I don't want my activity to
be stopped, because it's quite heavyweight, might be playing
background music, etc. so I'm left with the dialog theme.

2. Accessing input method completions

I need to offer the user an EditText with some extra completion

MultiAutoCompleteTextView does almost everything I want, but it offers
the user only the choices from my Adapter.

I want the completion choices to include the entries I've added, and
also the standard completions offered by the system input method

It seems that the cleanest way to do this is for my Adapter to get the
current completions from the input method, and add dynamically add
them into my list. But, I don't see how to query the input method for
the completion list. Is this supported?
