    Yep. I think is your only choice. But wait for a second opinion.
    Me = Nokia 5170/Palm III > Kyocera 6035 > Treo 600 > Treo 650 > Treo 700p > Treo 755p > Treo Pro > Palm Pre

    Wife = Treo 600 > Treo 650 > Treo 755p > Palm Centro > Palm Pixi

    probably not what you want to hear now, but isn't there a "warm boot" option with the Treo or something like that? Sort of like safe mode in Windows?

    Yes, there is, it is call warm reset and described as follows:

    How To: Reset your device (Soft, System/Warm, Hard, In-Cradle, Power Down, Battery Disconnect)


    You can do several types of resets on your device, in order of severity ...

    Soft Reset
    System (Warm) Reset
    Hard Reset
    In addition, you can perform other "special" resets if you have the right device:

    In-Cradle (for rechargeable devices only)
    Power Down (for AAA battery devices only)
    Battery Disconnect (for Treo 600 only)


    Soft Reset

    A soft reset is similar to restarting a desktop computer. It's the most useful trick in your toolbox for fixing a variety of issues.

    Soft resets usually do not affect your personal data on your device, unless your battery is low. If see battery warnings, change or charge your batteries immediately even if there is an error message onscreen. Also, it's a good practice to perform a HotSync operation before any reset (assuming that synchronization is not the problem you are trying to fix).


    Use an unfolded paper clip, or the reset tool at the tip of your stylus.
    Gently press the RESET button inside the hole on the back panel of your device (where's the reset hole?).
    All data on your device should be retained. If you do lose data after a soft reset, you may have a more serious issue with your hardware that requires a repair.
    After a soft reset, the Welcome screen appears, followed shortly by the General Preferences screen (to set time and date).

    If a soft reset does not resolve your problem, you may need to try one of the other resets below.

    ----

    System (Warm) Reset

    A system reset tells your device to stop what it's doing and start over again, bypassing any system extensions. This can help you with "boot loop" errors, and let you remove any recently installed third-party applications that might be causing the problem.


    Press and hold the UP button on the front panel of your device.

    While holding the UP button, use an unfolded paper clip, or the reset tool at the tip of your stylus, to gently press the RESET button inside the hole on the back of your device (where's the reset hole?).

    The Palm Computing Platform screen will appear. Release the UP button when you see it.

    Because this reset is a bit awkward to perform, sometimes it doesn't actually happen when you think it does. Test to see if it worked:
    Open the Applications launcher.

    Choose the application named "Prefs."

    Access the General preferences (on some devices, you may need to access Power).

    Tap on the pick list for Beam Receive. Choose "On." If it still displays "Off," then your device was correctly system reset.
    Once you've tested that the system reset worked, perform a soft reset. Otherwise, some functions will not work.
    Sometimes a system reset fails to break out of a loop. These extra steps may break the loop without having to perform a full hard reset.

    Perform the first part of a hard reset but stop when you see the option to press UP to erase all data.

    Then perform a system reset as described above but make sure to depress the RESET pin first and then the UP button; otherwise you will complete the hard reset. Be careful! Don't accidentally perform a hard reset, or you will lose all data on your device.

    Hmmm, warm reset, eh? I'll have to try that next time it decides to be a steaming pile.
