Default Home button flashes recent apps list

I have both the 2012 and 2013 N7's, both updated to 4.4.2. I've noticed that with both of them, tapping the home button when in another app briefly flashes the recent apps window. It would just be a minor annoyance, but I still use the PowerStrip app, which uses a double press of the home button to open. The recent apps window screws this up. Since it's happening on both of my devices, I thought I'd check if anyone else is seeing this behavior on the newest rom. If not, it's possible there's an app somewhere messing it up, but it's a new problem with my 2012, I haven't noticed it before the past week or so. Nothing has changed on the 2012 N7 except for the new firmware. So, anyone else seeing this?

Not at all. I also recently had a new 2012 N7 I bought for a gift and didn't see anything like that after updating it to 4.4.2.

You probably have something messing it up like an app or something.
