This is the same bug that leads to the massive never ending multipliers. When you have two tool blocks separated by a gap, one block pops, vanishes then re-appears. This block will then continue to rise to the top of the screen and stop there.
It's easy enough to reproduce at will ... just setup the screen as below ... (T = tool)
T xT xxxxx
Move the tool on the right right by one, leaving Tool/Gap/Tool. The tool on the right will vanish then re-appear as noted above ... then just watch it rise!
It can be a little tricky to get the hang of moving the tool blocks so they don't explode before you get them where you want them but play with the game speed turned down so you have more time to think, and this should be pretty easy.

I just ran into this the other night, and again last night. It seems to happen with the multiplier (hammer) tools. I'm wondering how people can get so many multipliers, because once the tool hits the top, there are no more blocks! I'll see if I can reproduce it.
This happened to me with two furies in 18.104.22.168. I couldn't get more rows except by tilting the device, and whenever I did that, it reset the multipliers. I wasn't leveling at all after it happened, so I quit the game, and later when I opened it, I resumed. A grass block fell from the top, the stuck tool was nowhere to be seen, and I leveled up.
I've been having constant visual bugs which have been described in this thread ever since the last update. The game was a lot more stable/solid before the update. Here are a few screenshots. I'll post some screenshots when I get a chance to upload them (or easier yet, I'll e-mail them).
I think this thread has stuck longer than the tool blocks. In fact it has been 8 months and many game versions later so I think if there are any mods around they might want to let this one loose its stickyness.
