I had another look later yesterday and it was harder to replicate. Still some odd things were happening (ie. BFB drawn more times over itself, thus with funny anti-aliasing)

Tested with today's daily build and the elastic band effect seems ok now, only problem are the tile labels which don't update during the restoring scrolling.

Looks like as soon as you release the launcher, it jumps to a smaller distance to then animate in position. You should be able to notice this dragging it at its maximum banding.

@Christian: please reopen them to triage or confirmed rather than New when it doesn't match the design. Thanks :)

Marking as fix released as it doesn't happen with latest launcher, and the rendering artifacts don't happen either.
