Anyone else having this problem? The only way I know to fix it is a reboot.
Not seen it before, doesn't it go into more detail in the full notification area?
What do you mean by "full notification area"? This is the app drawer. It doesnt happen on the homescreens.
Yes, but when you drag the notification tray down, does it not tell you what the error is?
No... there is no error or error code to speak of.... its just the text gets misaligned. That is the "error". Sorry for the confusion.
It's happened to me after some software installations. Only fix was to reboot. I haven't noticed it yet on 2.1update1, but I haven't installed much since the update.
Ah right, I figured if they programmed an icon in the tray, they'd include more detail with it. God knows then, but I believe you can 'fix' the text by force stopping 'launcher'
I am running the newest update, but i think you are on to something with the app install as i added 2 earlier and updated 1.
I know right! I tried stopping the launcher, and when it restarts, same issue. Reboot is the only thing that has worked for me so far.
Oh well... so I am going to assume this is an OS issue and not an issue with an app I have, Hopefully Google is aware of it.
i got the same damm issue.. what did you do to reboot? pull the battery? not a complete rebbot i hope!
Reboot is just shutting the phone off and back on.... then there is a battery pull and a wipe/reset. It just requires you to power cycle the device.
I had this error both before and after the 2.1 update (although less frequently). It's hard to reproduce exactly and killing all the apps with advanced task killer doesn't solve it.
Only switching the phone on & off.
Bug fix please - google.
Force closing the launcher is about the only way to get rid of it if you don't want to reboot.
How do you force close the launcher? Thanks
Settings => Applications => Manage Applications => Filter running.
Scroll to launcher, select it, hit 'force stop'
