TextView marquee scroll behavior different in AVD 1.6r1

 My application has a list of species names, some of which are too long
to fit in the TextView.  For example, "Black-bellied Whistling-duck"
gets truncated at "-duck".  Using AVD 1.5r3, the TextView's marquee
scroll does a nifty shift of the text to display the last five
characters (i.e., "-duck").  However, using AVD 1.6r1, the TextView's
marquee scroll shifts the text to display those last five characters
and then about a dozen spaces and then the beginning of the species
name again, as if the TextView text were "Black-bellied Whistling-
duck              Black-bellied Whistling".

Is this new behavior of the TextView's marquee scroll intentional?

1. Features that would be great to see in a 'cupcake'

As a G1 user (new to the g1 scene) i thought i would post a few things
that i have found could do with an update -

Being able to create shortcuts in the pull up menu - yes, i know about
the app that lets you create shortcuts, but these can only be placed
on the home screen(s) and this space eventually runs out.

I know its repetitive, but true, an on screen keyboard - it would be
helpful and time saving

The function to allow a user to switch in and out of root - like sudo,
so a user can enter root, close energy wasting apps and then exit root
before doing any damage... Of course a task manager that did all that
for the user would be even better, rather than making the user attempt
to gain root access.

Letting apps in the market-place be organized by star rating - there
is currently popularity and by release date, but it seems useless
having a star rating if they can't be organized by it.

Well thats all the updates i have found so far that could be done, i'm
sure there are many more, but i have not encountered them yet.


2. Custom dialog in PreferenceActivity loaded from addPreferencesFromResource()?


I have a 'settings' screen that is loaded from an XML layout like so:

I have a <DialogPreference/> in place that is working ok, but I'd like
to spruce it up a bit, including adding text to be read from a file.
Is this possible? How can I go about programatically control this
