When pressing "home" button, sometimes the "Complete Action Using..." screen comes up
This problem is kinda hard to search for, but hopefully other people have seen it and found a solution.
I got the EVO on launch day, but this issue only came up in the last 2 days. Basically, if I press the "home" button, sometimes an Android screen will come up saying "Complete action using" then it gives me an option to choose HTC Sense or Launcher.
Even though there's a checkmark selection for "Use by default for this action", this screen will still come up in the future.
Selecting HTC Sense brings me to the Sense UI home page, but it's a pain to have to make the selection all the time.
Has anyone seen this? I'll try to take a screencap and post it later.

Menu button > Settings > Location > Use GPS satellites
Menu button > Settings > Location > Location Setting
I set both to Yes. Careful tho: pressing the Use GPS Satellite option, in addition to displaying the Yes/No radio buttons, also actually toggles the radio buttons. So if the Use GPS Satellite option is currently checked, pressing it will display the radio buttons with the No button marked. In that situation I press Yes and then press the <-- button. It's quite annoying behavior and inconsistent with other similar screens.

Hmmm...for some reason I thought they did. I'll have to look into that. But at any rate, the launcher prompt that we're both seeing says we can clear the default by making a change at the following location: home settings > applications > manage applications. However, I didn't see anything there that was relevant. Maybe I missed something?

My EVO has not started doing this yet (knocks on wood), but my HERO did and it drove me nuts. I couldn't find a solution to save my life. My eventual solution was to switch to the EVO. =)
I just wanted to mention that this is NOT EVO specific in case that helps find a solution.

Thanks Mustachio, I found that setting but doesn't make any difference. I've emailed HTC support but I don't hold a lot of hope.
I may just get a replacement but with the EVO shortages, I'm not so sure...
I found an old thread on xda dev that suggested an app called "Home Switcher", but even that is incapable of saving the Sense UI as the default home screen.

Unfortunately, my issue is still there, AND it was BEFORE I installed LockBot (which I use and enjoy). I would hate to have to uninstall that app just to fix this (especially since it existed BEFORE the app was there), but I might give it a try to see if it at least is a way of solving the problem (just not an ideal one).
I would definitely like to fix this annoying little pop up.
