Emulator 1.5 displaying blurry images. Emulator FWQVGA displaying misplaced layout

Id like to know if you guys face the same problems I do.
Unfortunately Im not able to try my layouts in real devices right
now, so I have to trust the Android Emulator.

The problem is: using some specific configurations things are
displayed just the way I need them to, in others they dont; and in
the end I dont know if this is the real expected behavior of if it is
just the emulator.

1: All my pngs are bluried on my avd using android sdk 1.5. Well, they
display just great for the others. This affects not only images loaded
onto a imageview but also my icon (png 48x48).
2: I have an AVD to simulate a FWQVGA, which is a SDK 2.1 avd using
WQVGA432 skin. Here I face two problems:
- The avd works only for the first time I launch it. Things are
displayed correctly until I close it and reopen. Without installing my
app again (which means starting the same app I instaled in the session
before) widgets are displayed as the skin was a WQVGA400.
- If I set android:largeScreens="false" so android uses compatibility
mode for large display devices, FWQVGA display widgets wrong, as a
WQVGA400 avd. By what I know and understand a FWQVGA device is a
normal display device, so android:largeScreens="false" should not
affect it.

Have anyone ever faced this problems?

1. Create and write to bitmap (clipping)

I have a game grid.  On any given move there it is possible that any
of several hundred items may move and move multiple times (this is not
a continuous animation,  one move ... results and wait) .  In windows,
I  created a bitmap.  For any move I would restore and draw as
required.  Then when it was done, display the new bitmap on the
screen.  The original was a Windows game.

I think I need to do this for Androd as well.  One problem I had was
memory.  I dont think having hundreds of objects stored in memory
would be good with the available memory in Android.

All the examples I find seem to create a new view, canvas, or bitmap
or whatever for each item.  I have not found the proper example for
what I want.

So if someone has a link or code, I would appreciate seeing an short
sweet example.  Or suggestion.  Im a rookie, so the shorter the
