Hi Andreas,

I recently sold my Android 3.2.1 tablet and only have an Android 4.1.1 device, so I am unable to test whether or not this bug shows up with other Android versions.

With Android 4.1.1, when the virtual keyboard is activated, the "Back" (previous screen) arrow at the bottom of the screen changes to a hide keyboard button. If I am running a Hollywood applet, activate the keyboard with ShowKeyboard(), and then press the system's hide keyboard button, the Hollywood player freezes and nothing else can be done.

Note that the virtual keyboard can be hidden with no problems using HideKeyboard(). The lock up only happens when the system's hide keyboard button is pressed.

This looks like an issue with Android 4.1 because the hide keyboard button doesn't appear in previous versions. Unfortunately, I don't have a newer version than 4.0 here, so I'll have to see if I can get 4.1 for the Android emulator and see if I can reproduce the issue on it. Thanks for the report!
