I'm having a bit of a weird issue here. Recently (about the past week or so), my iPad will become stuck in whichever orientation it happens to be in. Has anyone else had this issue with the new iPads? I've read online that others had similar issues, but those were with the iPad 2, and way back on iOS 4.2.
(To preempt the good-natured suggestions about the orientation lock setting and button to the left of the music controls, I know about those. They don't help.)
I have to do a respring or full reboot to get it working properly, and even then it only rotates for a good 5 minutes or so. I'm wondering if anyone has encountered this, or has any advice. The only thing I haven't tried yet was a full restore of the OS, which may be next. It's under warranty (obviously), in case it turns out to be a hardware issue. I'm currently stationed in Japan, so shipping these to and fro isn't really an option, especially now with that USPS ban on shipping items with lithium batteries in them.
