I started from scratch because I had done so much I couldn't remember what. Reformatted the SD, wiped, installed. Tried the simply Elegant theme and things seemed fine. Tried the Nice Blue Clock Widget
(first time I've tried it), got a ADW FC about 15 seconds later.
I had been trying some widgets before when I had the FC's so I guess its a widget problem. I just don't remember having a problem when using Jerry's Green Theme.
