I am having a problem removing tape residue from a flat white painted wall (drywall). I have tried warm water and soap, but am afraid to damage the paint by trying a marketed product.

Try Goo Gone in an inconspicuous area. I think you'll be pleased with the results.
Have you tried picking up the adhesive using more of the same tape?
I also found this article "25 Helpful Items To Remove Sticky Adhesive Goo" here: http://tipnut.com/25-helpful-items-to-remove-sticky-adhesive-goo/
A few of the tips look promising. I think I would try
10. Baking Soda & Water Paste
16. Art gum Erasers (Not a pink pencil eraser! Look in an art supply store or perhaps even a scrap booking store)
24. basically, heat with a hairdryer to soften and wipe off with a damp cloth. Good luck!
wd40, olive oil or baby oil works like a charm.
Try using Mr. Clean Magic Erasers, slightly dampened. They work well on most surfaces! Good luck.
Have you tried using a steamer on it? Or maybe even a hair dryer.
Now don't go using Goo-gone, Goof-off, Baby oli or WD 40. You will end up haveing to wonder how to get the oil stain off next. Just use your hair drier then forget about it. The heat releases the adheasive.
