Starting the email app for the first time you are presented with 3 text fields to set up a new account. When a field is active there is an X at the far right of it to clear the field. This X is difficult to trigger; often it will think the user is pressing outside the area and close the currently opened text field and keyboard. I tested this on the Buri 1.3 and while the X field is the same area, it seemed much more responsive for me and triggered properly for me almost every time. 
This also occurs with the X at the end of the search mail field.
Other instances of this X seem more sensitive (such as the E.Me search bar) and have no trouble detecting my tapping. 

Repro Steps: Prerequisite - no email set-up yet
1) Update a Tarako to BuildID: 20140415004002
2) Open email app
3) Enter text into one of the fields
4) Attempt to push the X at the end of the text field
5) Repeat steps 3 and 4 a few times

The text field and keyboard are closed
The X will be more sensitive, maybe a larger collision-area, and detect my tapping to clear the text field.

Does this happen on other UIs in the operating system?

I am not seeing this in any other UIs on the Tarako v1.3T MOZ ril.

X's in other UIs work as expected.

Note: When the issue occurs in the 'new account' page of the email app, the area or amount of the screen being touched seems to be relevant. For example, I see the issue far more frequently if I use the broad flat of my thumb, whereas if I use my fingertip the issue occurs far less frequently. So it seems that people with larger fingers will see this issue. ;)
