Android Spinner Layout Issue

I have been working in Android for a while but can't figure this one out.

I have a horizontal linear layout that includes two spinners... So far so good.

The first spinner is always offset about 40 dip below the first. No matter what layout I use (TableLayout, LinearLayout etc..) the first spinner is always below the second.

Has anyone seen this behavior before? If so, how can I correct it?

Please post the code, so we can see where the problem is.
from my experience with Android, it is likely to be due to "gravity" or "layout_gravity", but please post your xml so we all can see it

I solved it.  

My apologies to the experts. While I was putting together the code to post here, I found the issue.

The one spinner that was offset below the other was wrapped in an extra LinearLayout. Once both had the same layout parents, the problem was solved.

Working with such text based (xml) non compiled indirect code seems to lead to such confusions quite a bit.

This was solved by the asker of the question.
