It could be a bug with the OS that the update fixed. Quite possible.

Right. I remember that Apple had fixed the iPhone 4 antennagate issue with a software patch. If that can be fixed; screens can of course be fixed. The logic is simple; the screen is all controlled by the firmware installed in the device. The firmware can gain total control of what's being displayed on the screen, its response time and so on.

In Belle FP1, this adds additional check for applications’ Cleanup stack and thereby triggers the failure during application lifetime.
