He's not crashing, it's a hang. I can't remember if logcat shows those.

My guess is that it's a memory problem since he's running a very old 
version of Android with not much RAM, and restarting the app may force 
retained apps to release RAM. But a log can't hurt at any rate.

Klaus, remove all unnecessary widgets from your home screen(s). Also go 
through all the apps in settings and disable or delete any you don't use. 
Android will not allow you to do that for required apps so if the buttons 
are enabled then it's safe. Most devices come with a lot of bloatware that 
runs in the background and uses memory. Widgets are especially bad at that.
