I've been having the force close issues, too. Its only been the past couple days. I love that power strip as well, it just eliminates the need for the normal home screen apps. Love being able to turn the notification bar off, too. Oh, and the continuous scrolling.
I don't know of any other home replacement app that offer any of those features, so I've stuck w/ it despite its lag (which thanks to overclocking is no longer an issue). Hopefully they'll update soon, and if it solves the prob, I'll let ya know.
