Default Unlock slider gets stuck? Any ideas

Hi,
I've loaded touchlockpro onto my phone to try and cure the proximity sensor intermittently not locking the screen during a call. This seems to work well.

One problem seems to be that intermittently I can't unlock the phone. I'm fine using the normal screen swipe- but occasional it sticks.
When it sticks the touchlockpro application icon (Clock and Batt) is highlighted white and never turn black allowing the unlock.
When it works fine the touchlockpro icon is white for a short while, then it turns black after a second, then I can unlock.

I don't seem to be able to use the touchlockpro keys (Vol Up, Vol Down) to unlock the phone.
Is this a Windows Mobile problem or app problem? Any ideas?

FYI- once it's stuck locked, I can only unlock by either taking the battery out or calling the phone.

Help.

I'd have to say this is a Windows issue since I've had it a few times and I don't have touchlockpro.

I'm guessing it's not too widespread or doesn't happen to most people that often as I don't recall seeing a post about it on here.

If you get it quite a lot then I suppose the software could be making the issue worse. Do you remember if you had this problem before installing it?

I think the issue was there before, but it's my wifes phone so I can't be 100% certain.
Seems like it gets stuck. is there any other way to lock/ unlock i.e. not using the screen slider

You can turn the slider off, using BsB Tweaks, but that obviously has it's own set of issues (switching the phone on by accident etc..)
