Samsung fascinate keyboard issue

I have the Samsung Fascinate, and I love this phone, but occasionally I have this issue of 'holes' in my keyboard. I use the swype texting, but every now and then I'll swype my finger over a letter in the process of making a word and that letter breaks the chain and stops the word, then the chain picks back up at the next letter beside the missing one. It bothers me. The only thing I can do to make it quit is completely shut off my phone and wait for it to reload so I can send this single text. Is there anyway that someone else is having this problem and possibly knows how to fix it?
