My Sensation updated to 18.104.22.168 last night and since then I've had various problems:
The update was one of the last things I did last night so it really worries me that I've had all these issues within a few hours of use. Makes me wonder what other things are going to happen down the line...
Anyone else having similar issues?

yep i havce exactly the same problems as you state.
The most worrying being the warm to touch phone even when in use and poor poor battery life.
A tad annoyed to to say the least. Everything was perfect untill this software update, now has virtually rendered the phone useless.
Any suggestions or help vodafone

A very helpful chap in the Belfast store (Alain) was able to pin down the problem last night for me. It's not a fix but it's a workaround.
As well as the battery life and heat, the phone was chomping through data. I'm talking 200MB yesterday alone! Alain's theory is that the update does something to the background syncing of the phone.
Anyway, the workaround is to go into Accounts & Sync and switch off background syncing. You should still be able to manually sync individual services with no issues. Not ideal I know, but otherwise the phone is back to its old self.
He also recommended doing a full reset, which I'll be doing at the weekend, and reckons if others report the problem, a fix should be forthcoming.
Hope this is useful for now.

Having similar problems but my main inconvenience is the fact that it has stopped the ability of me changing my home, to launcher pro or launcher7 for example, and many of the ones i hae installed are now 'hidden'. If i go to the apps on market, it says they're installed but no option to open.. What has this crappy update done!?
