Could you please give us the information about the timing that the error message below is recorded in Simulator.log?

ERROR AndroidAvdHelper - com.itko.lisa.mobile.android.AndroidSdkException: ANDROID_HOME is not set.
ERROR System.err - Exceptionin thread pool-7-threaad-4 java.lang.NullPointerException
The condition to record this message in Devtest 9.0 or 9.1 is
Simulator runs in the linux machine and the DevTest Console access occurs.
And if the access(login) to the DevTest Console continues, then the process
% /bin/bash -i ... echo $ANDROID_HOME
increases periodically. And the message is recorded in the Simulator.log
The DevTest Console is not continuned from DevTest 9.5 or upper(EOS feature).

And the way which is described in the knowledge article KB000038028 is for avoiding to create a large number of zombi processes like
% /bin/bash -i ... echo $ANDROID_HOME
in the Linux operating system. And we cannot promise that this way can avoid the message in the Simulator.log.
