libbps Dialog updates vs threading

I'm having a problem with dialogs on libbps. The problem only started happening recently after I updated the NDK and simulator. I'm currently using the 2.0 (release) version of the NDK and 2.0.0.7971 of the simulator.

 

I have a multi-threaded application. In my main thread, I can call dialog_update() and any updates to dialog texts are shown on screen. However, if I call the same function from a different thread, the dialog isn't updated.

 

I'm wondering if this is due to some of the threading changes in libbps.so.3. Any ideas?

Yes, you are correct.  You need to make all your dailog calls on the same thread.

Sorry, what I said was not quite accurate.

When a dialog is created, the events that are associated with that dialog will go to that thread. Any thread can create a dialog.
