Have an app running on the Surface. All works fine, except sometimes when pressing a button there is a quick flash from the taskbar momentarily appearing at the bottom of the screen? The Surface is running Windows 8.

Any thoughts?

Nothing? I can't be the only one running a Full screen AIR app on a Surface? Or wait... probably I am. This happens across every surface I've tried it on and is a real problem. It's not only distracting, it eats mouse clicks and prevents proper interaction with the app. And not only does the taskbar flash on, the entire desktop screen shows every so often, just from clicking on the app - whether on a button or not. Seems to definitely be a bug in air... and perfect that this app is supposed to go live in 100+ stores next week...

OK, so got a couple more Surfaces this morning and these do not exhibit the flashing behavior. All running same version of AIR (19.0.0.190) and Windows 8, so I have no real idea why this is happening. But on the ones it does it makes the app fairly sucky to interact with. Looking at differences in processes and such now... so - hopefully (probably) it's not a bug in AIR. Will report back if I figure anything out.
