    Was wondering if anyone else has been having same problems.

    It has been about 2 or 3 times now that some icons are disappearing randomly.

    So far it has always been my gmail icon. Its not that big of a deal because I just put another one on my home screen...just not sure why its happening.

    Are the apps with disappearing icons installed on the sd card by chance?

    I am using the standard launcher. Nothing special. Happened again today.

    I lose the same icons every time I change wallpapers, and have to add them back to the various home screens.

    No solution found yet.
