    When i'm playing iPhysics / GPsphone, sometimes it jumps to the dock without any reason, anyone can tell me how to fix that?

    It seems to be related to a memory leak of some kind, whether from Summerboard or something else, as the more you load it, the more likely it is to happen. Restarting Summerboard helps, but the leak still occurs and eventually causes the crash. This is particularly annoying when I'm testing out iPhysics levels I'm working on, as that requires frequent loading and reloading of iPhysics to test changes.

    I don't know if the latest update of SummerBoard still has this problem, but the "Dim Wallpaper" option was causing memory leaks in SpringBoard when turned on.

    Restarting SpringBoard only restarts this process, not the other ones running in background or sleeping that don't depend on it. It's faster than a full reboot and should be enough in this case, if that is the problem of course.

    The last version of Summerboard still has the Dim Wallpaper bug. I'm not sure what they changed, couldn't find any hint about that... there's really something to dislike about applications you can't have any information about.
