Maybe I'm the only one seeing this, and it's completely cosmetic, but I wanted to bring it up anyway. I know there are plenty of code developers like me who are anal about little stuff like this. Here goes.
When I manually drag the app drawer up, the icons/widgets behind the drawer dissapear until the launcher snaps into it's open position, at which point they show back up. Closing does the same thing. This only happens in portrait mode, and with not with landscape.
I'm running Sholes 2.0.5, using the smoked glass theme, and the non-2.1 Launcher.
I'm not complaining, just curious if anyone else has seen this happen -- I think all of the devs for these ROMs have done a bang-up job.
