Default Easter Egg?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone else get an error message sometimes that says something to the affect of "Device imput error... The system is being retarted right now." It just started happening this weekend. I cant imagine this being a standard error message for all RIM products. I swear this isnt a joke.

I would imagine that some programmer was writing an error routine for an exception handler and had to report something about the exception that was thrown or didn't know why the system had thrown it. Funny if true.

I got that a few times as well a short while ago. No clue why it happened, but I have since updated to the latest 4.1 code and haven't seen it since.

I get it when searching for a name if I hit the escape button too many times.

I seem to get this when I have a very full message box and have been navigating the BB as fast as possible.

Maybe the processor cant handel all the thread calls when you are doing to many user inputs within a time frame?....???
