This issue was making me tear my hair out, so at least now that I've found this thread I know it's not something I've done wrong. I too starred the bug report, here's hoping someone at Google puts this at the top of their to-do list!
Let's hope! The more support we get the better, so tell your friends ;) I saw a similar Flash bug (much less severe) with 16 stars at no.2 priority so hopefully we'll be noticed soon!sqiddster2012-01-10 22:58:09
@Tom... I have studied this problem, and in fact all you need to do is press the key fordirection you are stuck moving in. Perhaps this indicates the cause of the problem or could be used in creation of a temporary solution?
