Of all the SDK's 1.4.0 seems to be the most stable except for the textarea not wrapping when you type in it. I tried compiling under 1.4.1 and 1.4.3 and 1.5.0 and textarea works (wrap) but those other sdk's introduce new bugs (IE: create a view, put some buttons on it, and anchor it at the bottom with a scroll table view above it. Under 1.4.2 on, you can scroll the table, but the buttons do not receive any click events… uggghhhhh
Honestly, 1.4.0 is not the most stable. I recommend that you upgrade to 1.4.X from the continuous builds website, get this issue working, and then explain the other issues you are having, and someone will try to resolve them.
