When the user attempts to modify their homescreen settings from the homescreen [accessed via holding a tap on a divider/empty-space on the homescreen; select 'Homescreen Settings'], they will observe some inaccurate UI populate momentarily. The UI that will display is shared from the 'Settings' page and shows a smaller selection box displaying the information to change before changing to the default UI. During this step the UI is also displaying the default information for the UI [default setting is 'Three Columns'], regardless to if the user has changed to 'Four Columns'. This also reverts to the accurate information after a moment.
Worth noting that this issue does not occur if the user attempts to modify their 'Homescreen Settings' via the option found in the Settings menu.   
This issue was observed in 2.2 with the above symptons. In 2.1, video also provided, by following the repro steps will encounter a different UI disturbance that is still disorienting to the user. It also does not occur when attempting to change the 'Homescreen Settings' via the option in the 'Settings' menu.

Repro Steps:
1) Update a Flame device to BuildID: 20141031061804
2) Hold tap on homescreen divider/empty-space.
3) Select 'Homescreen Settings'.
4) Observe UI as it populates.
5) Change to 'Four Columns'; return to homescreen.
6) Repeat steps 2-4.
UI populates with inaccurate information and sizing before resizing and assuming accurate information.
UI displayed for Homescreen settings is accurate and displayed accurately.
