Widget Disappearing from Home Screen & App Drawer

This has happened a few times already. The widget disappears from the home screen and the App drawer, and the only way to rectify this is by rebooting the phone.
The widget then shows up in the App drawer again but has to be re-added to the home screen. Anyone else having this issue?

App icons/widgets

DC doesn't control home screen app icons or widgets, Android manages icons/widgets. Sometimes during app upgrades breaks the widgets or removes the icons/widgets from the home screen. In some cases it may be an issue the amount of icons/widgets on each home screen, try lowering or removing icons/widgets that are not used on a regular basis
