Android - ListView onItemClick() not firing in 4.1 jellybean

I had a user just install 4.1 (jelly bean), and the ListView onItemClick() stopped working in my app. The event doesn't fire (checked by breakpoint and console) and the UI doesn't appear to visibly change any. So I tried in the emulator (even though it is incredibly slow), and got the same issue.

Has anyone noticed a difference in the new OS?

There is nothing focusable in my item's layout, and it works fine on older OS's.

Here is the layout containing the ListView:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

Here is the layout of the item:

</RelativeLayout>


My API level is:

<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="8" android:targetSdkVersion="13" />


Any ideas?

From my comments, I found that if you have subclassed ListView and overridden onAttachedToWindow, you need to make sure that method calls super.onAttachedToWindow. A library I was using was not doing this and I was seeing the same behavior you were.
