Hmm, that sounds vaguely familiar...I seem to recall that behaviour, but
it was quite simple to get out of that mode by just holding and releasing
the stylus, as I recall. I never encountered a situation where I needed
to restart to get out of that.
I'm hoping to resuscitate my work on the iPaq sometime..I'm hoping the
new Modules stuff will let me streamline the image a lot more.
