Default Constantly Highlighting Text

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone else have an issue when they try to scroll in an email or something that text starts highlighting all the time? No matter how fast I try to scroll it still highlights. Then, it goes back to normal for a little bit. I have the sensitivity and hover stuff all set to the recomennded settings. Anyone else having this issue...or just me??

Not just you it happens to me alot too. Very frustraiting.
I now have a Droid Incredible And have put my crap first version of the storm to rest but would still love to know whats up with it my girlfreind still has a storm so it would be great if there was a fix for it.
Also when im in a text field and hit the UI OP JK or L keys it has a tendency to kick the cursor out of the field and when i try to correct it, it gets all spuratic and goes haywire. typing keys im not even hitting.Does yours do this also?
And does anyone have a fix for this?

It only happens to me when the hand I'm holding the blackberry with has a finger inadvertently touch the screen. So long as I touch with just one finger at a time, I never have the problem.

Sort of like the touch pad on my laptop - if my palm hits it when typing, my pointer goes wild.

And I thought I was alone on this too. This happens to me all the time, what I usually do is to clean the screen with a damp cloth, and it goes back to normal for a while (until the fingerprints and grime build-up again, I guess).
