Thanks for your response tsac
Since the initial post, things seem to have stabilised. Even have Telmap back up and running without further loss of channel. Don't dare to try the flashlight app again though.
What really frustrated was not so much the glitch - I'm a computer professional, I make a living from glitches - but how bloody awkward it was to trace cause and implement the fix. Security wipe and restore is somewhat drastic to fix what I would guess was a trivial problem. From other refs I have found to similar issues caused by similar apps (anything which siezes control of the video hardware) is that the problem is caused by the app not properly releasing its "hooks" (or BB equivalent). Do we not have a way (like windoze task manager) of forcing errant apps to close in the BB? Or would this not have the effect I imagine?
Incidentally, I'm a bit surprised at your comments about the BB as a music platform. I've always seen it as one of their strong points and, speaking as an ex sound engineer, I can vouch for the fact that they've done a pretty good job of it. So good, in fact, that the BB is now my preferred hi-fi source.
