Issue with Test class SingleLaunchActivityTestCase

We're developping a test activity using SingleLaunchActivityTestCase<>
and JUnit on Android 2.3.3

We face the following issue :

In JUnit view in eclipse we have the following function call order :

testActivityTestCaseSetUpProperly() <- this one is built in android.

Each test use sendKeys() or TouchUtils.clickView().

On testC() sometimes we get this error :
W/InputDispatcher(  112): Permission denied: injecting event from pid
3753 uid 10001 to window with input channel 406a0b70 (server) owned by
uid 10022

??? Launcher (desktop) get Events ??? We do nothing for that

So I put a Thread.sleep(5000) in testC() at the beginning.

I launch the test again :

testActivityTestCaseSetUpProperly() : Ok
testA() : Ok
testB() : Ok
Here application is put in background (for no reason we do not call
activity.finish() and co.)
testC() is launched but desktop is display. The test failed as we
cannot inject events to desktop.

The workaround for this is to create a dummy testZZZZ() function in
that way, testC() is executed before activity get closed.

testActivityTestCaseSetUpProperly() : Ok
testA() : Ok
testB() : Ok
testC() : Ok
testZZZZ() : don't care of result.

NOTE : sometimes the function order change :


In that way, the issue is not visible.

Hope it helps.

 I notice this in

    protected void tearDown() throws Exception {
        // If it is the last test case, call finish on the activity.
        sTestCaseCounter --;
        if (sTestCaseCounter == 1) {
This : "if (sTestCaseCounter == 1)" should be replaced by "if
(sTestCaseCounter == 0)" ?
