    I did a couple searches but came up empty so I thought I would post about this.

    I'm new to Android so I don't know if this is a bug, feature, Android specific, or HTC Sense specific.
    I opened the People list, held down the menu button to bring up the keyboard, and started typing someone's name. This appeared as white text on a grey floating box above the list. However, now I can't get rid of it. The backspace key on the keyboard doesn't do anything, and there don't seem to be any menu options to deal with it. It only appears on the "All" tab, it disappears when I switch to the Groups, Online Directories, and Call History tabs. However, when I go back to the All tab, it pops up again.

    Short of terminating the app, does anyone know how to get rid of this text?

    That happened to me once. I think I did a battery pull and it went away. I seem to recall it actually working on some roms

    So this is a bug then?

    Ended up having to reboot to get rid of it.
    Anybody else seen this?
