Swype was really active on the 18th when this issue blew up on them.
They had one more post on their official forum on the 19th.
Then after my posting on the official forum (on the 22nd) about their silence, this is their current response:
"We understand that this is a temporary solution and as I stated before we are still investigating the issue.
On another note:
Is anyone out there without apps that interface with accessibility experiencing this issue?
