You're still using the matrix-style layout, right? Are you specifying  
LAYOUT_FILL_COLUMN (in addition to LAYOUT_FILL_X) for the widgets in  
the matrix? Take a look at the information about this in section 12.2  
of the book and see if that addresses your problem. If it doesn't, let  
me know and I'll take a closer look.

Hope this helps,
