Hi David,
the BACK button should not close the application. At least
it does not close for me. Home key will probably start
working in next release so you have to wait for it.

Application can be started from adb shell via command
"am start". You have to specify parameters like activity name
and package. Not sure what's the exact syntax. Try google :)
