The dreaded "Inconsistent UID" bug!!

    My Droid Incredible (stock, not rooted, 2.3.4) has been flaky the last few days - crashing, rebooting - and this morning I got the dreaded

    "UID's on the system are inconsistent. You need to wipe your data partition or your device will be unstable"

    plus a button that says

    "I'm feeling Lucky
    "

    Googling this gets over 157,000 hits and on every model and maker you can think of. Most of them seem to end in resetting to factory defaults, so I did that. Now I have to reconfigure my whole phone although I don't know if I'll bother because I'm getting a new phone anyway.

    But WHAT IS THIS? What caused it and how do I prevent it?

    I've been Googling for over an hour and I have no clue. Some people think it's malware but I haven't loaded any new apps in months. Does anyone have any idea?

    Thanks in advance.
