 I have a simple androidTestCase class that has this test:

public void testFoo() {

this fails unless I sleep first, then it passes. Whats the deal?

 "There are APIs to allow you to run code on the main thread to access
its objects." I'm a little confused about what APIs you are talking
about and how they would help solve this problem. Could you clarify?

To me it seems that the test runner should not be calling my tests if
the Application is not finished initializing yet.

1. How to troubleshoot a Stackoverflow error in android ViewRoot?

I am getting a StackOverflow error inside ViewRoot, I would appreciate
some help in troubleshooting it?
I don't understand why it causes a StackOverflow, since from the stack
trace, it is not calling something recursive.
And i don't understand why it report line 2155 as the line for the exception:

line 2155 is a if check:
    if (sendDone) {
                if (LOCAL_LOGV) Log.v(
                    "ViewRoot", "Telling window manager key is finished");
                try {
                } catch (RemoteException e) {

Thread [<3> main] (Suspended (exception StackOverflowError))

Thank you.


2. Different APNs


I wonder how Android deals with situations that require multiple different APNs 
to be open?

A classical example would MMS, which at least for European carriers seem to 
require a different APN than normal Internet access.

Does sending or receiving MMS break Internet connections?
