    This started about an hour ago. When I open gmail on my phone it just keeps flipping the page from left to right over and over. I can't stop it. When I exit, the phone reboots.
    I've uninstalled/reinstalled the gmail updates. I've cold started and done a battery pull.

    Anyone ever seen this behavior before? I can't even figure out what terms to Google.

    Mine doesn't do a full reboot but it goes to the white HTC screen and then reloads the icons and widgets.

    Hi all! New to the forums, and directed here because of this exact problem. It started last night around 10pm. All other apps work just fine. Tried shutting it off an on, battery pull etc, with no luck.

    Hmmm...do they push out OTA updates that don't require our consent? I know I didn't manually do anything before the problem started, so I wonder if there was some sort of automatic update.

    Yup, same here. So glad it's fixed as I use that account for work as well as personal email.

    Same thing here, since last night.

    Same 'flipping' of the screen for me, too. Started at the same time.

    Strange twist, though... I have three gmail accounts on my Motorola Droid (original), but only one of the accounts has gone haywire. The other two accounts are fine! Now, the haywire account no longer appears on the list of email accounts. But, when I get a new email, I get the notification icon at the top, and I can use it to access the account, but all it does is flip and flash.

    Deleted the cache, and the data. No change. Next, I guess is to uninstall, and re-install the app. But, if the problem is on their end, will that help? Or is the problem with a recent update sent to my phone?

    (still messed up as of 7:11pm Eastern, Friday night)
