Thanks a lot Ben,

I am also seeing this behavior on Windows Phone 7.   How can i help
you with this?

Something changed again recently (i.e. last couple of days).  Now i
see the page rendering "better", but scrolling/panning/zooming dont
work & i cant enter anything into the username/password textboxes.

If needed i can provide a screenshot of what i am seeing.

Any help/guidance you can provide would be much appreciated.  Right
now my users cant login to Twitter :(
