According to another supposed email from Apple CEO Steve Jobs to a concerned customer, Apple is aware of the problem with third-party iPhone and iPod touch applications crashing, and is working on a fix for the next firmware update. “This is a known iPhone bug that is being fixed in the next software update in September,” Jobs allegedly said in the email to an AppleInsider reader. Since the release of iPhone Software 2.0, and continuing through the releases of 2.0.1 and 2.0.2, iPhone, iPhone 3G, and iPod touch owners have reported problems with third-party applications failing to load, and simply returning the user to the home screen. The report speculates that the problem may stem from improperly set permissions.

Got an e-mail from Apple saying it was permissions, and also applied to some music tracks. FOllowed their instructions to redownload the content, but their link to instructions for removing duplicates was a dud. Used the find duplicates command to remove duplicate music tracks (not applicable to iPhone apps).
Thing is, apps are still crashing; not all of them were available for redownload.
