Hello, my first post here! so excuse me if I'm not posting this in the right place.

I've found a bug with the Internet Tethering Settings page; which also highlights a small problem with iPhone's state-saving behavior and Steve Job's task manager hating attitude.

Take a look:
(Don't have enough posts to post links/images.. it's also attached)

Notice the missing <network> button at the top that takes you back up a level?

Yeahh.. theres no way out of this! If you click the home button and come back to the Settings app from the springboard/Multitask Bar you get the same page because it saved the god-damn bug ridden state!

The only way you can get rid of it is to do the awful - hold the power button till off slider comes up... switch... hold the home button till app closes - maneuver!

you could open up a different app, double tap home button to to bring up multitasking menu and hold your finger on setting app until it starts shaking and press the red minus.
