I have 2 viewpagers in the application.Both are custom – One returns false in onInterceptTouchEvent. The other has a try catch implemented in onInterceptTouchEvent. How is this error occuring then?
Added code for the 2 viewpagers below

public class BottomBarViewPager extends ViewPager {

    public BottomBarViewPager(Context context) {
        super(context);
    }

    public BottomBarViewPager(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) {
        super(context, attrs);
    }

    @Override
    public boolean onTouchEvent(MotionEvent event) {
        return false;
    }

    @Override
    public boolean onInterceptTouchEvent(MotionEvent event) {
        return false;
    }
}


public class GalleryViewPager extends ViewPager {

    public static final String TAG = GalleryViewPager.class.getSimpleName();

    private boolean swipeEnabled;

    public GalleryViewPager(Context context, AttributeSet attributes) {
        super(context, attributes);
        this.swipeEnabled = true;
    }

    @Override
    public boolean onTouchEvent(MotionEvent te) {
        if (this.swipeEnabled) {
            return super.onTouchEvent(te);
        }

        return false;
    }

    @Override
    public boolean onInterceptTouchEvent(MotionEvent me) {
        if (this.swipeEnabled) {


            /*
            This is caused by a bug in ViewPager and a solution is to catch the Exception
            and continue on.  This only happens if you quickly tap with 2 fingers in different
            locations, rapidly.


             */
            try {
                return super.onInterceptTouchEvent(me);
            } catch (IllegalArgumentException ex) {
//                SinclairLogger.e(TAG, "Caught exception in onInterceptTouchEvent", ex);
            }
        }

        return false;
    }

    public void setPagingEnabled(boolean enabled) {
        this.swipeEnabled = enabled;
    }
}

Added code for the viewpagers as requested
