Now I noticed there is actually a screen redraw. When I do something that covers the home screen for a longer time, i.e. have my browser open for reading news articles, on close of the browser there is momentary a naked wallpaper screen that builds up my stuff on it. I guess that's what you are talking, when Home was pushed out by the low memory killer?
It's not a biggy for me, but since I can effort it I'll put Home back to stay loaded in memory. Thank for the tip!
