When a text comes in, even tho the SMS dialog box is over my writing - the app take all of my input for itself only and doesn't allow me to select to read or dismiss my text - as if the box is phantom overtop of my WriteRoom document.
Something about WriteRoom, is robbing the dialog box - which is suppose to be on top and at attention for input. It's as if WriteRoom has an intercept that's not conventional, hijacking attention away from system functions?
What are your best leads so far? Is this consistent with all iOS 5 devices? Are other users seeing all of this as well?

I hate this bug as much as anyone else, and we've already spent a lot of fruitless time trying to figure it out or what the common elements are (it's device-specific in an odd way).
