So every couple of days, perhaps once a week, my home button will stop returning me to the home screen. I can hold it down for 10 seconds and force quit whatever app I am in, but it will not back me out of anything. Easy fix is to shut down the device and restart and everything is fine but this is highly annoying. Anyone experience this?

I am jailbroken, not sure if that is part of the problem or not.

Try and do a restore, the jailbreak may have messed that up.
Do a restore and use the phone as normal, if the home button doesn't give you problems then jailbreak and use like normal.
If you've restored and its giving you issues then take it to the Genius bar.

When I was at the Genius Bar Today (Macbook issue) -- I girl came up to the Bar with the same issue. The genius hit the button a couple of times and then exchanged it for her, very quickly I might add.
