 For some reason, I'm getting this:

01-22 07:46:15.226: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(8345): Caused by: 
android.content.res.Resources$NotFoundException: String resource ID 

But the resource *is* there and the R class has the generated ID.

Anyone have any idea how i can resolve this?
(yes, I've tried a clean build)

 Do you have a value defined for whatever config you are in?  If you don't
have a default value set, this can cause the lookup to fail.

 I delete this post a few minites after I posted it :)

Turns out I was mistakenly asking the system resources to get the local 
string resource... which of course wont work very well :)

One of those little lines of code you ignore that causes you to bang your 
head agains the keyboard... and as soon as you stop looking at it, its 
obvious :)

1. glDeleteBuffers crashes


I tried to use VBO on 1.6 Android SDK and get a crash whenever I try
to give the VBO id free using glDeleteBuffers. The issue has already
been filed here:

Is there any way of giving a VBO id free, then? Otherwise I'm afraid
that I can't use VBO because I might run out of graphics memory/buffer



2. first call to setContentView taking more than 10 seconds

My feeling was what I did was bad so your comment of
"Oh, heavens, please don't do that. You're begging for a memory leak.
is inline with my feeling about what I did. But I am not 100% sure why
I would have a memory leak.

The time is almost all spend in the call to setContentView

What I meant by 4 views was 4 layouts. Each layout has several
textViews,editTexts,imageButtons,Buttons and a list view. I use the
vewFlipper so that I can animate and the switch between screens.
