At any rate, using a new launcher has increased my happiness notably.
Really glad to hear that reducing mem footprint relieves the issue somewhat. This is near dealbreaker for me, since I know I would not be able to tolerate the malfunction for very long.
If this is indeed working as designed, the designer(s) should be summarily terminated. This is unacceptable. If this must be there to support Sense on ICS, then my logical conclusion is that Sense should be scrapped.
Then again, I'd prolly prefer the Sense Camera app over any AOSP app... can't win.
