It may be that you need to reset all of Pocket Day's settings.
I have been running PD for almost a year now, but I probably upgraded between various betas and such at least 10 - 15 times easily. During all those upgrades, PD keeps it's settings between version upgrades and even through OS upgrades (whereas all other apps lose their settings and reg keys, PD doesn't). As new features get added and programming changes, and old settings aren't used any more, the configuration/settings file (whereever that may be) I would suspect gets bloated. I had not had any problems with PD on any version until recently when I found I had hotkey conflicts which caused a crash, and little quirks that I didn't have before.
crs sent me a link to a utility to download OTA, which I installed, which blows away all the settings so you can set everything up from scratch. It's a good idea to write down some of your settings before doing that, of course -- but it cleared up any problems that I had and I'm sure it resulted in a cleaner and meaner config file.
You might try contacting crs and asking for PDTest (off the top of my head), doing a reset and giving it a go. Sounds like you have nothing to lose since you're a reg'd user already. Takes about 5 mins to re-enter all settings and preferences, except for the colours and fonts which take a bit longer to tweak but before going to that trouble, you'd be able to tell whether it solves your issues.
