iPad 2 - iOS 5.1.1 - Wacky Home Screen Icon Placement??

Alrighty... so... I woke up this morning, grabbed my iPad to update a couple games, and saw a bunch of my icons in the top left corner on the homescreen. I was able to move them around and place them anywhere I wanted...

I've never run into this before, and doing a hard reset fixed it... but I was just wondering if anyone else had run into this before??

Happened 1x with me. Did the hard reset just like and the problem was fixed.

Yeah, get weird stuff with the menus lots of times any ios since I got over 700 games pn my new ipad 64gb. Sometimes my icons totally disappear off, sometimes folders disappear and after a hard boot, the apps aren't in that folder and are all over the main menu. Scattered everywhere.

I've had my iPad since mid-February and it has happened to me four times. Copies of my apps are all bunched up in the top left corner with the normal layout shifted left and down. Just another iPad bug to deal with, I guess.

Ah, yeah. I had that happen a few times. It's something to do with unlocking just as your orientation changes or something :/ Fixes when you change the orientation again, or so it did for me.
