Sorry, it was the Holo Launcher causing the adding widget to home screen issue but I don't have that issue on my mom's gingerbread . I did have the same issue on my nieces phone with ChronosX, I forgot so I changed hers back to go launcher. Holo launcher works great on my moms Huawei Ascend X but doesn't like our Milestone...
