Like, the first time it jumps back to where you started, your middle finger had come down and appears to have put pressure on the upper right corner of the display, which might explain why it suddenly went back at least that first time.

In fact, throughout most of this demonstration, there appears to be fingers applying pressure elsewhere on the body as well. Could that be a part of it?

Personally, I've been trying one for a couple of weeks (a boost model that has been deactivated) and have not noticed this happening. When I heard about it here, I tried to recreate it. I guess I can see it sometimes happening and being annoying, but I never saw it happen on its own until then.

Screen flicks and Swype work as expected according to the way I always use them (phone held in one hand, finger on other hand making contact with the display. Never any pressure applied to housing. I learned the hard way that keyboard housing devices can be delicate in the past).
I have one I am testing(boost model) for Odin development and it is exactly like the video. It really sucks.. Awesome phone but it makes simple tasks a pain... They really need to push out an update. I honestly am shocked that Samsung put this on the market like this. I put in my call to Samsung to let them know about it.

P.S. they so told me to factory reset the phone, lol. I politely laughed and asked if that was their answer for everything. The rep was a bit stunned by that question...
