Cannot swipe notification bar down (but works in landscape mode)

I'm running 7.1 the stable release, installed using ROM Manager.

Worked just fine for a few weeks.

Last week the notification bar wouldn't let me swipe it down to see the notifications. I rebooted a few times trying to get it to work. Even reset ADW launcher thinking that was it.

However, I noticed if I change to landscape mode on the phone (turn it sideways) I can then swipe it down in landscape mode only.

I've searched online and others seem to have had this issue with random Android phones but the only fix people are talking about is to take the phone back and get a different one...which I doubt is the proper fix for me.

Anyone? Ideas? I was thinking of just reinstalling CM but wanted to see if anyone had an obvious fix.
