I don't know if rooting might make a difference as I think I remember reading somewhere it has to do with apps not being given the proper permissions by the Android system.
I've not heard of an issue like that since apps were used on the Sd card - the issue being that "aways running / essential" apps, needed to be on the phone itself and couldn't be run reliably from the Sd card due to losing settings etc.
