    Not a big deal, but I wonder if it's evidence of a bigger issue.

    It's happened before and a soft reboot fixed it for a day or so.

    What should I do?

    It's happened to me once and with just one icon on my home screen. Mine occured after I was experimenting with a homemade multimedia dock with a strong magnet. I thought the magnet may have been the problem. Did a reboot and problem went away, hasn't come back but I have not used the dock again.

    My home screen had one vertical row of icons shift up about half their height. It returned to normal by itself and I do use the dock.

    If it continues to happen, I would wipe the phone and start over. I know that kind of sucks, but it very well could fix the issue.

    My Droid did that too for a few days, but all is fine now. For me it was that the icons were in the normal two rows, but not in a straight horizontal line, some were higher, some lower.

    Were you using a dock, car or home? Magnets?
