      On master and using dialogs plugin. Using a trivial app that has a button to create an alert dialog after 500ms timeout. If the Back button is hit at approximately the same time as the timer expires and the alert is to be shown, the following exception appears in logcat:

      It looks like there is an attempt to show the alert dialog after the activity's onDestroy() method has been called.

      When resuming the app by clicking on it's icon in the home screen or using the Multitask button, the webview doesn't render completely, I see only a black screen with the usual status bar. The app must be killed, and then it works fine after a restart. It appears that there is a pretty small time window during the timeout in which this can be reproduced, something on the order of 200ms.
