Android woes

Many moons ago I had a good setup with building on Android, but I've 
since moved my work to new computers, and can no longer set up a working 
install for building on Android.

Two main problems:

1. All versions prior to v7:  LiveCode will not accept the Android SDK 
folder I select, even though selecting the same SDK folder with v7 works 

2. Building with v7 (since that's the only version that accepts my SDK 
folder), it builds the app without complaint but when I run it in the 
emulator it stars briefly to a black screen and then immediately quits. 
  Simple app - no code, just one button to see if I can get it to run. 
  Apparently this exit is happening before script interpretation comes 
into play, as I've added a preOpenStack handler that puts up an answer 
dialog, and that doesn't show either.

I have the same results with OS X and Ubuntu.

Anyone else seen these issues?
