App icon disappears after low memory crash

When the device enters a low RAM state, the system closes my application. Upon returning to the BB home screen, the application icon not showing and instead it is replaced by the default box icon. I am not really worried that my application my have a memory leak, but I need to ensure that the icon is always displayed on the home screen. 

 

Any thoughts? I tried implementing LowMemoryListener so I could exit the program gracefully when memory is low, however it is never called before the operating system closes my application.

 

Thanks,

Scott

It appears low RAM is not the issue, but low flash... I am investigating further.

Try profiling our application.  Search the forum for help in running the profiler, it is not trivial to do.
