Palm Pre Day 10 - Camera Fluke led to Rapid Battery Churn and the Device Felt Hot to Touch

After opening the camera app and then closing it without taking a photo, my phone started getting really hot and was burning through the battery capacity really quickly. I performed a soft-reboot (orange-shift-r) to prevent the phone from overheating or running down the battery.  I was unable to reproduce this behavior after reboot.

I also started a post on the forum in case anyone has had a similar experience to relate.
