information by citing data that you did not provide us.

Because at the time I did not know it was relevent

That is the perfect summary of the argument in favor of constructing and
posting an SSCCE.

An SSCCE includes all actually relevant information, regardless of
whether the person constructing the SSCCE is aware of its relevance.

Constructing a non-SSCCE excerpt the contains all information that is
actually relevant is much harder. It requires the programmer to know
what is relevant to the problem without knowing enough to solve it, a
rare condition.


Well, I have just got another problem that cannot be done this way,
unless I post the whole program.

I have multiple listviews each containing hundreds of strings.
I switch between them with various buttons.
When they load, they are fine.
However, if I use a finger to scroll the screen up and then switch to
another listview while the last one is still scrolling I get entries
broken into multiple lines that persist.

It sure sounds like SSCCE material to me. I would start with questions
like how many listviews are needed, and how many strings per view.

My bug, Android 2.2 bug or h/w problem?

If this happened in non-Android Java, I would suggest checking that all
GUI activity is on the event dispatching thread. It sounds as though the
view change is being processed before the scroll has finished, which
should be prevented by doing both in the same thread.

Maybe you should do the equivalent check?
