Random appwidget unresponsiveness

I have an appwidget that works fine most of the time.  

Sometimes though, the buttons don't respond. When I press on them nothing 
happens. If I swipe to the left and back to the right it seems to sometimes 
fix it. Nothing gets put in logcat so I'm out of ideas about what might be 

Can anyone help? Do you need more information? 

It sounds to me that the intents aren't set properly... but they are! I 
can't figure it out.

2. adding and reading new attributes from/to a declare-styleable

i was wondering if anyone could give me hints on this one (i am re-posting
an older version of a question i once had):
i created a new attrs.xml that adds some functionality to the soft keyboard
sample code.
i would appreciate any insight you may have on this:

i added: <attr name="keysImg" format="reference" /> to:

<declare-styleable name="Keyboard">
        <!-- Default width of a key, in pixels or percentage of display
width -->
        <attr name="keyWidth" format="dimension|fraction" />
         <!-- The image used for keys  -->
        <attr name="keysImg" format="reference" />

and added: <attr name="keysImgTemp" format="reference" /> to:
<declare-styleable name="Keyboard_Key">
<attr name="keyIcon" format="reference" />
<attr name="keysImgTemp" format="reference" />

in the xml layout file the data look like this:
<Keyboard xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
and the key looks like this:
<Key android:codes="49" android:keyIcon="@drawable/sym_keyboard_shift"

in my code i try to reference these values
 TypedArray a1 = res.obtainAttributes(Xml.asAttributeSet(parser),
R.styleable.Keyboard);//get all attrs for the keyboard as defined in
The line below DOESN'T WORK! (has null value) - WHY????
BitmapDrawable orgBmpDraw=

TypedArray a = res.obtainAttributes(Xml.asAttributeSet(parser),
//the kine below WORKS!
BitmapDrawable orgBmpDraw=
//The kine below DOESN'T WORK - has null value - I eventually solved it by
changing the attribute from android: to jk: so i needed to override the
existing internal attr.xml with mine
BitmapDrawable orgBmpDraw=

what am i missing here?
