Hello again!

I've got another ( :-) ) complaint about kinetic scrolling on mr500:
On big lists, when you reach one end (top/bottom), the kinetic scrolling function loses its smoothness and the content jumps like a magnet to the borders.

This bug is reproducable with the simulator.

I've also done a screenshot, what I found strange ...

IMO this is rather convenient since it marks the end of a list. I didn't implement it intentionally but I didn't bother fixing it because I quite like it.

To be honest, on the mr500 this looks like a disturbing glitch, because when the described case occurs, the first line-entry disappears and the hole content jekrs (for a moment ).

I propose at least to implement this *intentionally* ;-) or add an option in the settings to deactivate this.

If it means anything I vote no, there is to much code to go through as it is, and it enhances nothing really.

Maybe this behavoiur is nice/convenient on Android,
but I've tested also Cowon D2-Simulator ... and this glitch is (still) annoying too :'(
