When I start the phone, the system loaded and the desktop appear, appear also the White screen of death. It say me "The gpe process is vanished" and so.
Now sometimes if I click on Exit, the message desappear, and sometimes does. When the message doesn't desapper the phone is unusable, but the usb link is up, and workin on remote there's no problem.
This white screen some times appear also during the loading phase, when the green square is bouncing left and right. I've updated many times but the problem persist.

Here is the complete error message:

The gpe process vanished. This is bad. This is not meant to happen and is likely a sign of a bug in Qtopia. Please try to reproduce it and report the bug to http://docs.openmoko.org.

To be able to use your phone as a phone again you will have to restart Qtopia.

(F1) Restart (F2) Exit
