One of our partners reported being unable to profile code using the nexus4. It would be good to understand why, and see if there is a way that we can fix this for ourselves/partners.

I'm not sure if this is enough to debug, but I'm seeing the following in the logs:

Hi Jed, Benoit - Wondering if either of you two know what may be causing this. It would be really great if we could provide our partner with a fix. Thanks!

See bug 914190.  The patch there is r-, but should work if a quick fix is needed.

See also bug 926734 (where the patch from 914190 was successfully used), but I don't think any of the issues showing up there affect the Nexus 4.
