EL30 Update causes browser to "force close" daily

I recently did the EL30 update, and since then the browser has been crashing once or twice a day.  It seems to happen most often while in areas of weak signal and when the phone is trying to switch back and forth between Sprint service and a 'roaming' service.  I never experienced this with EI22.

Has anyone else noticed this?  Are there any suggestions of how to prevent this from happening?

(Also, some feedback for Sprint - the handling of keystrokes from the keyboard is better on EL30 than EI22, but it's still still pretty bad.  There's a good fix out there from theimpaler747 at XDA Developer's.  It worked flawlessly on EI22, and I'm surprised that EL30 didn't adopt the same fix.  Also, you owe those folks a debt of gratitude for providing critical support that neither Sprint nor Samsung seems able to provide.  I was minutes away from returning my phone and switching carriers out of frustration when I found the keyboard patch.  So they've saved you at least one customer and I'm sure I'm not alone.)

the EL30 update was for the regular epic...this is the epic 4G touch forum. you'll still get a answer to the question but you would probably get a quicker responce over there.
