First thing first, I've got a Moto Droid with stock 2.2 (FRG22D). I think this was going on before I updated to FRG22D yesterday, so stock 2.2.
Anyway, some time ago, I decided to do away with the Google Search widget on the screen, instead, choosing to invoke it via the search key at the bottom. I've noticed that when I go to do a search, at least for web searches, doing this, the search will call up the browser and show my returns. For whatever reason, after I've done typing my query and submit it, the virtual keyboard remains and takes up 1/2 my screen.
I don't like this, I thought it should go away once the query is submitted. Anyone else experience this issue?
