    Every once in a while, when going back to the home screen, one of my icons will be highlighted in orange (like when you press it) and the text below it will scroll. How does that happen? Can you do this intentionally? Has anyone else seen this?

    sometimes if you hit the screen twice because of a slight lag it'll highlight one of your icons.

    it's happened maybe once or twice, or at least that's how many times i've noticed it.

    What about the scrolling text though? That's a weird function to be "turned on" from a lag.

    Yeah, I got my Droid on release day and I've only seen this happen maybe 4 times. The scrolling text should really be a feature you could enable. It's pretty cool.

    Hmmm. I've never installed home++ so it's probably not related.
