Default Strange issue with S2 switching home screens on its own every reboot.

My rooted S2 is doing something strange, and irritating. After a reboot it will load to whatever page I rebooted from, which always happens so I figured it was normal. But now after a reboot it will load to the home page for a few seconds, and then it will switch to the furthest page to the right on its own. Ive checked in the men/ edit to make sure I have the right page as my home page and its set the way I want.

Ive already done a full reset which helped for awhile, but after restoring all my apps its started happening again. So Im thinking an app is causing it, but no idea which one would do this. Any ideas?

I removed that page and the issue stopped. So I readded it and left it blank (no apps/ widgets), and it was still ok. But when I added the bookmark widget for ICS Browser plus it happened again. So for some reason that widget is demanding my attention. LOL. Its all ICS based browsers. It happens on ICS Browser plus, Quick ICS browser, and the stock browser. But doesnt happen with the Chrome bookmark widget. So im at a loss here.

UPDATE: I know this sounds stupid, but after installing a custom launcher I realized that there was already a stock ICS launcher installed that wasnt touchwizzed. So I switched to that and wow not only did it fix my issue, but the device feels like true ICS now and not what Samsung thinks ICS should be. So Im a happy camper now. I highly suggest this over the touchwiz launcher. Customizable tray apps as well!!
