Random booting out of a program

I have noticed that over the past week, there has been in increase in the number of times I have been running an application and I have been kicked back out to the home screen. This has happened both with apps I have installed, as well as native apps (like Safari).

I am running firmware 2.1, jailbroken.

Any ideas? One of the websites I was viewing when it happened in safari was realtor.com. Also, it was happening when I was planing fieldrunners last night - about 3 or 4 times!

I have tried turning my phone on and off, but that doesn't seem to help.

Yeah, I have done that as well.

It would happen occasionally before, but it seems like the frequency has increased over the last week or so.

I also have had this issue, with and without Winterboard. Not sure what the issue is, but a soft reset doesn't stop the issue.

May not have been winterboard, then...

I have had problems with some websites that make safari crash. For example, I was posting on another forum that is very graphic heavy and I crashed every time I tried to post a reply. My keyboard would lag very bad and then safari would crash. I don't know if it was the graphics or something else about the page, but I was unable to use it. No flash on the page, just ornate borders and headers.

I have the exact same problem with Safari, both with a jailbroken (no winterboard) and unjailbroken phone. After a certain amount of web surfing, Safari would get slower and slower to respond, and, eventually, would crash. Twice, it has locked up to the point I had to do a hard reset, though typically it just dumps me out of Safari. At this point, I would estimate that about 35-40% of my Safari sessions end with a crash. I do visit a lot of javascript-heavy sites, and I frequently launch Safari from NetNewsWire, but I have not been able to notice any definitive pattern leading to these crashes.

I'm new to the iPhone, maybe 2 months. I've recently noticed this with 2.02 and the Facebook app on my phone. How does one soft reset the iPhone? I'll try that first.
