It is about the 3rd or 4th time now that I have to completely reinstate my TREO to factory state and re-install all my apps.

I do not know what triggers this. All I know is that the security screen on my Treo (madated security by company policy via Goodlink) went xxxxx. The input area's fonts become huge! and will not accept my password. I know it is not wrong as I used the numeric zero. It is the same if it is numeric pad or shift is triggered. So it cannot be wrong. I totally lost access whenever that dreaded font size appears.

I heard in today podcast that there is patch for some funky characters. I am not sure if that is the same. Palm has not release any ROM update for our regione (Hong Kong).
