Well FoxKat, your post about dirty power turned on a light bulb. I unplugged from the charger and it worked. Plugged it back in...Possessed!! I plugged it into my USB port on my laptop knowing they better have better filtering built-in, and TaDa!! That was it!!!
So, long story short, Dude, You Rock! Now I can get back to work under the cone of silence!
Yeah, I noticed a similar problem with mine. When plugged into the charger, my phone would act like I was pushing things on the screen at the moment of contact, then it would become almost completely non-responsive.
Turned out that I had plugged the cable into the wart for a MP3 player, and not the wart that came with the phone.
The MP3 player wart puts out 1000mA where the stock charger is only rated at 850mA. Not sure if that makes a difference, or if it's just the cheap quality of the wart for the player. Not using that jack for my phone any more, but all my old blackberry warts seem to work just fine.

interestingly enoug my girls has the droidx and I have the lg ally. When using a cheap charger from ebay, it is really dependant on the outlet we use. The outlets upstairs are old knob and tube without ground and apparently the cheap chargers dont have much filtering because either the touchscreen doesnt work at all or its like a ghost is messing with it ( it will call people and text people if not loicked). If we use a good quality charger from the manufacturer, no issues on any outlet! just though that was interesting to point out cause its weird as hell!
