Help Weather Wallpaper Force Closing

I have a problem whenever I turn on my phone. It started happening intermittently this morning, but seems to happen every time now.

Whenever, I turn the phone on, I get an error that says "The application HTC Weather Wallpaper (process com.htc.weatherwallpaper) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again".

I did install a new app last night (Barclone Free) and updated Pulse.

I haven't tried turning the phone off and on yet, or uninstalling any apps, because I wanted to know whether anybody else has experienced this.

I'm using the T-Mobile UK Desire with Android 2.2.
I found that it only happens during the day, not at night. As if only the daytime animations are corrupted.

It only happened when the phone is on the home screen when I turn it off. If I turned it on and any other screen is displayed, it was OK. If I moved to the home screen from another screen it was OK. For a while, I just got out of the habit of switching to the homescreen before turning the phone off.

Now I've removed the animation from the homepage. This has two advantages:
1) The weather wallpaper no longer force closes.
2) There's more space for other, more useful, things on my homepage.
