    Default Taskbar Notifier and battery life

    Anyone else notice that the Taskbar Notifier app kills the battery and runs non-stop? I installed this and found that "com.JC.SMST" starts running. I left my phone unplugged and battery went from 100% to < 25% overnight, showing 8 hours standby and usage (it was just fully charged). Also I'm assuming there's no fix? I searched the forums and found no matches for this app, so I'm kinda at a loss. I've uninstalled for now

    I've been using it ever since it was first release and have noticed no such battery consumption! This application rocks

    Strange. The moment I did unload -w on the daemon when my phone was in standby the battery life/usage went back to normal (ie. not always in use where the usage=standby). I've got no problems since uninstalling it, but reinstalling it I'm seeing the same thing when that daemon is running. Any ideas why if no one else is having the issue? I like the app, just hate the battery drain it's apparently causing. I don't use SMB and the only other non-apple task running is SSH which I have turned off.
