Weird bug: screen loses drag sensitivity sometimes?

Sometimes, maybe once a day or so, my screen loses drag sensitivity. i.e. if I try to scroll up/down in an app (like Gmail), it won't work - instead the screen registers my drag as a touch/click. It's most noticable on the unlock screen - takes a few attempts to drag the circle upward.

It goes away after I click the display on/off several times. Not a big deal, but kind of annoying. My previous One X did not have this issue, but the new one I received (swapped it out at AT&T) does. Weird.

Interesting - my device only registers 2 fingers. Is that normal? 3 or more, it still only shows 2 dots (but they don't disappear like they do if I just use 2 fingers).

Edit - ah I see, needed to enable an option in the settings to allow 3+ fingers.

Weird, this issue only seems to happen when my phone is charging and near 95% or higher. Once I unplug it, the issue disappears quickly, within a few seconds. The app sniffs recommended is helpful - it shows how dragging registers as several touches rather than an actual drag. Very weird.

I've had that same issue, but only when using the bookmark widget. Once I removed the widget the problem went away.

The only touch issue I've seen is when playing Draw Something. It seems that the screen cannot keep up with fast movement as when coloring a section in (think scribbling). Happens when trying to spell something too. Best example, when trying to write a lowercase 'e' it usually ends up looking like a circle unless I go slow.
