Description aapo.rantalainen (reporter) 2009-11-27 14:04:58 UTC

I do not know. (Not related installing applications.) I just used application
menu to start application and next time it was messed.

Application menu has one display 'base'-applications and when I click
'More'-button, I get 'more'-applications (all other installed applications on
scrollable view)

When I go to application menu it shows both 'base' and 'more' applications same
time overlaid. Only top of them (scrollable 'more') are clickable.
I can start and scroll 'more' applications. I can cancel application
menu. I can't reach 'base' applications at all. 

I do not know what broke it, but now it is reproducible all the time.

I haven't yet booted, maybe it will fix this. Is there something I can / should
test before it?

I have also seen this behaviour once before, I have no idea how it got into
this situation, I removed the battery and restarted and have not seen it again

which is part of the internal build version
(Note: 2009 is the year, and the number after is the week.)

A future public update released with the year/week later than this internal
build version will include the fix. (This is not always already the next public

Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the
fix will be available to users).

Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).

I can also confirm this bug, happened to me today. I had installed MaStory (and
yesterday Chromium), but I seriously doubt that MaStory would've done this. My
version of Maemo 5 is PR 1.1.1, aka the latest one available, for now.

Also, killall hildon-desktop solved this for me. Just launch X-Terminal, if you
can that is (I have mine on the desktop as alias) and just enter that command,
press Enter and presto! The screen goes black for a moment, to relaunch the
hildon desktop.

That's all folks! :)
