Cant Delete Blanks unless in Safe Mode
Ever since I updated my 2g to fw: 2.2.1 I have found that I cant delete any of the blanks that I have installed no matter if they are installed via Cydia or made with iBlank.
I tap and hold the icons on the homepage to get them to shake.
Then I tap on the (x) of the blanks that I want to delete.
The spinning wheel appears and then takes me to the safe mode screen.
If I choose to (reset) it takes me back to the regular home screen just to force me to cycle again through this again.
If I choose (ok) to enter into the safe mode I can then delete the blanks, and then I can restart the iPhone.
I have already tried to restore (via shift restore)in iTunes, jailbreak with Quickpwn 225-2, but I have the same issues
I did not notice this when I was using fw: 2.2 but I never wanted to delete any.
And my wifes 3g fw: 2.2 doesn't seem to have this problem I can delete the iBlank blanks made on her phone as normal, so it looks like its on a 2g with 2.2.1.
Anyone else notice this or is there some way to fix this?
Found a temp fix
I found this on AppleiPhoneSchool.com:

Removing Uncategorized Icons from SpringBoard
Uncategorized icons on your SpringBoard. The only issue I have found with this is that it is basically impossible to remove these 12 uncategorized icons!! I tried deleting them and they just returned. I tried uninstalling the theme and that didn’t work. They even returned after I restored my iPhone! So, I did some research and found out what the deal was. I thought I would pass it along in case anyone else is having the same problem.
The icons are actually webclips and in order to remove them, you will need to ssh into your iPhone or iPod Touch. You will then want go into the var/mobile/Library/WebClips folder. In there you will see files with very long titles made up of letters and numbers. You will notice that 12 of them have basically the same file name except for the last number. Ex) E0E1221545BF41C7899B499EFFB09E91.webclip, E0E1221545BF41C7899B499EFFB09E92.webclip… If you open these files they will contain only an icon, which when previewed is blank. My files went from E0E1221545BF41C7899B499EFFB09E91.webclip to E0E1221545BF41C7899B499EFFB09E997.webclip. So, just delete those 12 files off your iPhone and then respring your SpringBoard…voilą they will be gone!
Its to bad that one has to go through all of this to delete blanks but whatever.
