I wasn't trying to be condescending. You brought up that you work in IT, like that makes a difference when you have a misbehaving application. Hint: It Doesn't.
I have the 8900. I, nor any one I know (and we have about 250 8900s last time I had someone check) has this problem.
Given the lack of other responses, and the lack of 552 hits when searching, I'd say it was not a common occurance.
What version of the 8900 code are you running?
