viewport height meta tag requirement for OS 6 simulators

I spent almost a day trying to figure out why my application was no longer working in OS 6 simulators so thought I would post here in hopes of saving others the frustration I faced......


Once I updated to WebWorks SDK 2.2 I began seeing an odd behavior in OS 6 simulators (torch 9800 specifically).  When trying to launch my app, it would load and then almost immediately close like it was crashing.  My app worked fine on OS 5 and 7 simulators and on an actual OS 6 device (torch 9800).  After a bunch of debugging and playing around with things I finally discovered that if I specify viewport "height" equal or greater to the device-height then the app worked correctly in the simulator.  Specifying a viewport height less then the device-height for some reason causes the OS 6 simulator to choke and close the app.


Note, that the application works fine in OS 6 simulator without height specified if built with an older version of the WebWorks SDK.  I only see the issue with the 2.2 version.  Also, the issue is only with the "height" parameter.  The application works fine in the OS 6 simulator if the "width" parameter is not specified.
