Emulator prompts to send usage statistics on every job run with "Keep emulators in the job workspace..." enabled

      Description

      My notes:

      Jenkins killed the job after 15 minutes.

      I increased the job's "Timeout minutes" from 15 to 45 minutes.

      The emulator prompts to send usage statistics to Google on every run. I
      need to find a way to disable that. I don't see that problem after the
      first run when I run the steps ad hoc on my own machine. I bet seeing it
      is an artifact of how cleanly the Jenkins Android Emulator Plugin starts
      the emulator on every run. I hope there's a way to turn it off without
      compromising on starting from a clean state.

      The prompt comes from DDMS. The presence of a `ddms.cfg` file in
      `$ANDROID_SDK_HOME/.android` with the contents below prevents the
      prompt.

      The Jenkins Android Emulator Plugin has code that's clearly intended to
      set up `ddms.cfg` with `pingOptIn=false`. Is that not sufficient? Is it
      not executing? Is something else cleaning up `ddms.cfg` after it
      executes?

      I deleted the `.android` directory in the Jenkins job directory and
      re-ran the job. It prompted me to send usage statistics when the
      emulator launched. Before dismissing the dialog, I looked at the newly
      created `.android` directory. It contains a `ddms.cfg` file containing
      only `pingOptIn=false`, just as I would expect from reading the Android
      Emulator Plugin's source code. I suspect that that configuration was
      once sufficient to prevent the dialog and isn't sufficient anymore. It
      seems `pingId` is required now.

      Empirically, the following `ddms.cfg` is sufficient on my machine:

          pingId=0
      

      I should change the Android Emulator Plugin to create `ddms.cfg` with:

          pingOptIn=false
          pingId=0
      

      I expect that will prevent the usage statistics dialog in both old and
      new versions of the Android SDK, assuming that `pingOptIn=false` worked
      in some older version.

      I'm using the following version of `emulator` installed via Android
      Studio 0.4.0:

          $ /Applications/Android\ Studio.app/sdk/tools/emulator -version
          Android emulator version 22.3.0 (build_id OPENMASTER-887826)
