I have two or three installed, and yesterday, I got the error, and tried
Avi's. It gave me the error, so I tried to open Extras to open Heaven or
Hell, and got the error trying to open Extras! I ended up doing the reset.
This is the first time I've gotten it that bad. :-)

As someone else mentioned, it's most likely that all those cheapo Newtons
that have the Reset app, had the app written just because of this error. I
bet it was on the button bar. :-)
