When running the Android 17 x86 image in an emulator, there is a known (Android) bug that causes repeated logcat warnings with high frequency:

W/Trace   ( 1191): Unexpected value from nativeGetEnabledTags: 0

See http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=39723

If we continue to use this image, we should filter out these warnings from tbpl logs.
Filtering these out is not going to help very much: They are sufficiently frequent that the logcat buffer overflows/wraps that much faster. As we run logcat today, the filtered logcat for most tests on x86 will likely only capture the last few lines of interest. Hopefully a new SDK with new x86 image will be available soon.
I have come to the conclusion that the best thing to do here is nothing: Filtering out those messages doesn't provide much improvement, and will only be necessary on an Android 17 x86 image.

...but it looks like we will be running Android 17 x86 for a while yet, and those messages are really getting on my nerves!
