It sounds like you've found a limitation of your device and/or storage card.

In testing further, I have discovered that if the database is on the SD card, and HS is in main memory, I do not have the problem. If the database is in main memory and HS is on the SD card, then I have the problem again. Very strange. Handy Shopper is a very small application, however, and I'm happy to keep it in my main memory.
Since I'm using WM5, I have hacked my registry and widened my scroll bars to 30px wide for all applications. Now I can scroll finger friendly! This pretty much completed my needs for HS. I'm a happy camper. Just trying to keep from pulling out the stylus as often. As I have a slide-out keyboard for typing, I'm pretty much there now.
