How to fix some mysterious problems.

When I download tweaks and stuff from cydia, other tweaks that came with cydia when I first Jailbroke my iPad will appear on my screen as blank white apps along with berral that was previously placed in settings by the creator. I'm not sure what causes this but I have to restart my iPad to put them back.

Do you have SBSettings installed, and do you use its "Poof" (hide) feature? As far as we can tell, this problem where hidden apps sometimes show up is actually due to a small bug in that hiding feature (libhide). It's harmless and you can just respring to fix it.

I don't have SBS settings, I'm not sure what is causing this. If not that.
