    I think it is a problem with Honeycomb itself. The android home force closes on me all the time and when it does some other random program I was using earlier will appear. Hit the home key and it goes back to normal. I also notice it randomly closes my live wallpaper and will go to one of the default ones. Hopefully these problems are fixed in a future update because it really makes the device seem half baked.

    Just a thought but have you tried cleaning the screen with a screen wipe?

    I used to get erratic touchpad behaviour on my laptop before I realised that a buildup of oils from my fingers put invisible pressure on the pad, seems to me the same is possible with touchscreens, probably less so if a screenguard is in place.

    not at all techy, but I'll do my best to find out!

    I have a screen guard on.

    I first thought it was dolphin browser bug cause I also noticing when i clicked homescreen bookmarks, they would move a few spaces and dim the screen but not open. other homescreen icons would launch. i uninstalled dolphin and seemed to work then erratic issue happened later. so i am at a loss. doesnt happen all the time so it is intermittent.
