Default Ghost Image of App when Unlocking Phone

For the past week or so, every time I unlock my phone (swipe the circle across the screen to access the home page after pushing the power button) I'm greeted with a ghost image of a Words With Friends board for about a second before the home page loads. Not really an issue, per se - but I find it annoys me. I've unistalled the app, rebooted, etc. and it still happens. Anyone got any ideas?

Open the task manager and see if the app is still open. I was having that issue with the gallery before the 2.3.4 update, and killing the app would stop it.

exit apps with the back arrow instead of home key, restart phone, ignore it.

Remove battery for at least a minute. Try Pixel Fixer, free in the Market, if problem persists when app is uninstalled.
