Android App Woes

It might be accelerated rendering, but it could also be the bug where 
libraries are unloaded and not restored. That's the bug I linked to. 
There's no good workaround for it. Since the Siva app uses libraries 
almost exclusively, it would certainly be affected.

BR: the "cicle" is the Home key and the "square" is the "recent apps" 
key (the app switcher.) Neither of these provide any messages, so you 
can't trap for them. Only the backKey sends a message.

This is a problem we can't fix in scripts. The only solution is not to 
use libraries (or acceleratedRendering, apparently.)
