    Does anyone else have the problem of the Default Home screen Force closing all the time? It's been happening alot after the 2.1 update and it's getting annoying. I dnt have Live Wallpaper on so that couldnt be the issue.
    How do you fix this?

    hmm, maybe it has something to do with 2.1 itself...

    I've been having a TON of problems with my home screen. So much so I've been thinking about returning my Droid I've had since the day after launch. My problem is everything disappears randomly from all screens and I have to reboot. SOOOO annoying.

    installed GDE home this morning and it hasn't done it yet since it's been installed where as before it would every other time or so when i unlocked my phone. Perhaps an aftermarket home is the answer

    I think they broke the launcher system in 2.1 somehow. No matter what launcher I've used since the 2.1 update, I've had issues with my home screen taking a while to load all of my icons if I've had an app open for a min or two and then go back to my home screen. A couple of times it took literally 40 secs or so (I counted) for it to start loading all my icons. I thought I was going to have to do a battery pull cuz it was so unresponsive while it was loading.

    Right now I'm using the newest NexBeast ROM with the ADW launcher and while it's still a little laggy loading my home screen occasionally, it seems to be a bit faster than the default 2.1 launcher I was using before. It's also pretty nice having a 2.2 style launcher with additional icons at the bottom of the screen too.

    I don't know if they broke the launcher in 2.1 but when a launcher(launcherpro) from the market is WAY faster than your's something is wrong.

    I've been using LauncherPro and it is wayy faster, but it force closes even more than the default. I may just deactivate my droid and go back to my old enV touch until 2.2 comes out.
