I've tried removing and reinstalling the widget.
Its acting really strange now and there are a few people on the widget site now also reporting problems so maybe I'm not alone. I wish I could pinpoint the reason only some are having issues.
i too am having the same problem. i posted a thread after yours by mistake. you are not the only one...it may help to try emailing the author (right click the widget, then click about) and let him know you are having the same prob as well.
