    What causes this problem? I have it too. I downgraded to 1.1.4, but still had the same problem. If we replace the two files above, what version do we replace them with?

You will ahve to restore your iphone to 1.1.4 and then replace general.plist and touch.plist file with a new one. The two files can be found on google. Reboot and the issue should be fixed. It's a lenghty procedure, so let me know if the issue still persist, then I'll give you detailed instructions.
