Swype keyboard not swiping?

I installed the Swype keyboard and it was working fine for a few days, but now it will not "swype". It responds to pressing individual keys but dragging my finger across the keyboard no longer has any effect.
Has anyone else had this problem?

Have you tried selecting another software keyboard and then reselecting Swype?

this happens, if you have it to apps2sd it can cause this and other issues, as well could be due to language package if install, as said try to unselect swype and re-select it, as well if you get the apk swype restore you can restore your original swype from your nandroid

I tried switching to another keyboard, then back again, but it didn't help. I can also confirm that I have not moved it to the SD card.
I have un-installed it and re-downloaded the beta and it is now working again. I'll see how long this works for....

This is a known problem with Swype, and happens every time you reboot the phone. Try un-checking Swype in Settings>Language and keyboard, then re-checking it. You will also need to re-select Swype as the input method by long press in (almost) any text input field, until the Input Method option comes up.
