Right. I own 4 Android devices, and currently only one of them has >=2.3 available; that's my Galaxy Tab, and Samsung released the update just a few weeks ago. So on my other 3 devices I can still only do "printf-style" debugging. My Motorola Defy has only just got an update to 2.2!
It's actually even worse than that; on the 2.2 Galaxy Tab some vital symlink or somesuch was missing, which made even single-threaded native debugging impossible.

Right, that's one of the other surprising "bad things" that I was referring to. I was able to work around it by installing a hacked version of the tools from crystax.net.

I'm very familiar with it :-)
