comment Is it a bad practice to use negative margins in Android?
I found similar behavior on a Nexus 4 (which is xhdpi) and 4.2.2. There was a layout with no padding, although a parent layout had padding. There was a TextView inside with negative marginTop. On 5.0 it worked fine. On 4.2.2 on both the device and in an emulator for Nexus 4, it disappears. The solution was to move the padding to the layout that contained the TextView.

comment Custom ListView with Date as SectionHeader (Used custom SimpleCursorAdapter)
Cyril Mottier has an improved version of this with a detailed write-up at cyrilmottier.com/2011/07/05/… I think the line which has "cursor.moveToPosition(position - 1);" solves the issue of scrolling back up.

comment Android Emulator with HAXM freezes on Mac OS Yosemite
There was a similar issue when Mac OS 10.9 was released. That actually caused a hard system crash. It was also fixed by a hotfix that was released for HAXM. I would keep up to date with these hotfixes whenever you are using HAXM on a recently released OS.
