I am getting a similar notification now (since the latest 8100 OS upgrade) but from a seemingly different app:
"The application com_google_gmail_lib is attempting to access phone logs. Would you like to allow access?  Don't ask this again. [Yes][No]
Vendor Name: Google
Application Name: Gmail
If I answer "NO", I get "Uncaught exception" error.
1) would you explain the reason for the notification to be the same a for the AutoLock issue described earlier?
2) would you venture a guess as to why I am getting this now (since the upgrade) and never had this problem before (had Gmail installed before OS upgrade for a long time)?
3) would it be completely naive/paranoid to suspect Google in trying to mine people's phone logs?
