MediaController problems

I'm using a MediaController in my applications but it is not working as expected on a Kindle Fire. In the standard android source code, touching the screen with the controller showing will cause it to hide. On a Kindle Fire, touching the screen with the controller showing causes it show for a further 3 seconds. I assume the source code for this class was modified for the Kindle Fire, although I can't imagine why! Can someone please confirm this is the case and suggest a decent way to fix it. I don't want to create a custom controller because I want it to keep in style with other apps on a Kindle Fire. I can't extend the class either, since the method that would do this normally is private.

I've just had my Kindle Fires update to the latest version and the MediaController is now working as expected.
