Your sample contains an incorrectly written AndroidManifest for using a custom
application class.  When I update it to a correct format:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="test_CustomAppClass.test_CustomAppClass" android:versionCode="1"
  <application android:name="test_CustomAppClass.CustomApplication"
  <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="4" />

I get a crash on startup, since we are only initializing the runtime for
Activity instances thus far.  So Jon, it looks like we need to initialize in
Application subclass java stubs too, as they can be instantiated and onCreate
executed prior to the creation of the first activity.

We might even be able to use this as an improvement to our initialization
mechanism, always create an Application subclass in java regardless of whether
the user creates one, and then use it to do the runtime initialization instead
of duplicating it on all the activity, service, etc... subclasses.
