    I noticed this the other day and thought it was a problem with Caterpillar so I ended up uninstalling that and thought I was good to go... however, it just happened again so I thought I'd see if anyone knew what was up.

    Occasionally when I get a text message (while my phone is asleep), when I go to unlock my phone to respond, the spinning wheel pops up... waits a couple seconds... then restarts springboard so that the unlock screen pops up once again. No, this isn't a huge deal as it only adds another 5 seconds or so to my unlock... but it's obviously not right and I'd like to be able to fix it if possible.

    Anyone have any ideas besides restoring?

    a quick update: i have a feeling that caterpillar is the problem. after uninstalling it, i think some elements of it are still installed. i noticed last night that my text messages are still re-vibrating every two minutes. so... my new question, is how do you completely uninstall caterpillar? i thought i had all of the options turned off before uninstalling it but obvious that is not the case.

    my phone is still restarting springboard on occasion... and it's not just when i get a text message. it's just randomly when i try to unlock my phone.

    Do you use PYSL? I would get random resprings when I used this program. If not then maybe a list of your currently installed apps would help us figure out what the cause is.

    First, vWallpaper is still a little unstable and caused re-spring issues on my phone before. Second, the fact that you have summerboard, customize, kate, and vWallpaper all telling your phone what to do at the same time causes re-springs also. I use customize and summerboard (used to use kate & vWallpaper, but never again) and I have not had a single issue since. Finally, FontSwap was never a stable app and I don't think it's available anymore because of that fact.
