Bug With Adjusting the m515 Sidelight?
As part of adjusting the sidelight on an m515, the user opens a dialog box that covers the lower half of the screen. Unfortunately, it seems that Palm programmers forgot to include a "refresh" command after closing this box. Many programs do it themselves, however many others don't. This means that after tapping the "Done" option, the top half of the screen will still display the original application, while the lower half, where the sidelight box was, is white.
A bit of research found that this problem occurs in Handmark Monopoly, Qualcomm's Eudora, and others.
The screen can be refreshed by tapping on another app -- the clock for example -- and returning to the original screen.
Thanks to Adam Zeit from Palmi for discovering this bug and doing the research. -Ed
