Description PJ 2012-02-16 11:07:37 UTC

1) Opened MWC android app
2) Cleaned/Rebuilt
3) Run (Release mode)
4) Select API8 Emulator

Going to post this for now, will try to re-pro to see if there are more conditions for the error. Jeff said he had some thoughts on the issue so getting the discussion going for now.
