    When clicking and holding the home button the very useful modal dialogue appears showing the list of recently used programs/applications. Unfortunately, most of the time it appears and then disappears again. It is very annoying and makes this feature useless.

    I am using LauncherPro on my Android 2.1 (CyanogenMod 5.0.8 DS), but with ADW launcher it showed the same behaviour.

    I wonder what causes this behaviour and if there is any way to fix it.

    Cheers!

    I've found sometimes it seems to depend on for how long you hold down the Home button before releasing. It's mostly hit or miss.

    Exactly, if you hold the home button short enough the dialogue stays and can be used, but in my opinion it should be shown and not disappear if the button is held long enough full stop.

    Well, I'm guessing it's either a hardware flaw with the button that only happens to some of us, or a software flaw that happens to all of us. :)

    Either way, don't expect it to be fixed. HTC don't really care much about fixing the issues they cause.
