Hrmmmm.... wonder if that was related to the issues they had with some touchscreens going wonky? The symptoms appeared as if something was stuck in one of the corners of the touchscreen and acting as a mouse click..... I occasionally had the problem, but fortunately for me the firmware update resolved the issue for me. Some folks were not quite so lucky.
