    So when you have alternate launchers installed, the Gingerbread launcher doesn't appear in the "choose default" list that appears when you press Home. Clearing the current default doesn't help, the list continues to not show the Gingerbread launcher.

    There is an app that provides a work around for setting the default launcher (Moto Home Fix) but it isn't compatible w/Gingerbread yet.

    Is there a setting in the build.prop file or other that I can edit to set the default to the new Gingberbread launcher? (This wasn't an issue like this on Froyo...but evidently something changed in Gingerbread, or maybe more likely the leaked ROMs have a bug in this area.)

    I'd like to play around with the GB launcher w/out having to uninstall my other launchers.

    Thanks, it does! :) Much appreciated.

    Wish someone would take the Gingerbread launcher and make it do 5 rows/5 columns, that would be very cool.
