some of my apps went from their name (like Baseball Superstars 2009) to something like com.gamevil.bs09......etc, a few of my apps have done this for some reason, anyone have any idea why or how i can prevent it?

Those look to be their java package names, and I've had them do that on my phone too. I don't know how to get them to switch back, but it's pretty bogus.

i thought about doing this aswell but just figured they'd rename themselves again anyways, gonna do it regardless but was wondering if there was any way of reversing/renaming the apps

I have had this problem too, I have uninstalled the application and reinstalled it, the misnaming still comes back. Currently for me the apps that it changes are Personal Assistant, Mabilo Ringtones, was doing it for Meebo but i upgraded and it changed back to normal.

reading on XDA forums, there's mention that this is a Sense UI issue as the other android phones don't experience this... if that's true, i hope it's fixed via 2.0 :) I have quite a few apps that have stupid names... for example, my Handsent app is "#ffcef7ef" and it has a red "x" as a icon... :p
