    is anybody else having this problem? i am using the paid version of ADW launcher. at random times whenever i hit the home button and exit out of a menu, an app, or anything really, i will get asked which launcher i want to use. i ALWAYS hit "set as default" and then ADW. i haven't noticed any kind of pattern as far as it only happening with certain apps or in certain situations. seems completely random.

    any help is greatly appreciated!!!:D

    so should i assume that nobody else is having this problem and it's just me, someone else is having this problem and doesn't know what to do about it, or that someone is having this problem, knows how to fix it, but refuses to help? lol

    tl;dr bump.

    I have run into this issue on gingerbread with a number of launchers.

    I have yet to find a fix. I did install an app called default app manager and it seems to help.

    If you are rooted, you can freeze the stock launcher and the problem is immediately fixed ;)

    Running ZEAM Launcher here and have never seen this problem. Have you tried an app called "Home Switcher?" It allows you to set your default Home Launcher.
