If you go to youtube and watch a few videos, then go back and access the settings menu, sometimes the rocketbar will become unresponsive.
Repro Steps:
1) Update a Flame device to BuildID: 20141008000201
2) Tap on Rocketbar and go to
3) Watch a few random videos
4) Tap home button to return to homescreen
5) Open 'Settings' and select some random options
6) Tap home button to return to homescreen
7) Tap the left side of notification bar to open rocketbar  

Note: If the rocketbar still works, repeat steps 3-7 again.

The screen will darken, but there will be no text box and the keyboard will not prompt.
The rocketbar opens normally with the text box and keyboard intact.

After watching some videos on youtube and exploring the Settings menu, the rocketbar remains responsive.

The issue does NOT occur on Flame 2.0 (319mb) because v2.1 and above had a new rocketbar UX implemented.

Removing the regressionwindow-wanted keyword, as the rocketbar did not exist within separate apps for branches earlier than 2.1 as mentioned in comment 1.

[Blocking Requested - why for this release]:

The Rocketbar should be available and functional in all apps. Although this is a low repro rate, it is possible to hit a bug that requires the user to pull the battery to recover. Nominating this for 2.1? blocking

on 2.1 I havent been able to reproduce this yet, still trying
Need QA support as engineer has been unable to repro
Keywords: qawanted is also related, and went from reproducable to non reproducable with similiar symptoms
I'm also unable to reproduce this issue in the build below. I used to reproduce this issue last week but we also had white screen problems when loading apps. I seem to remember it was only after experiencing the white screen problem that I would see the rocketbar lock up as well.

In any event, I'm unable to reproduce. 0/12 tries.
