Ok, only have an iPad 2 with iOS 5.1.1 on it for initial testing at work. Was unable to reproduce the issue you are seeing. Will test an iPad 3 with iOS 6.0.1 next when I get home.
Could not reproduce this issue under iOS 6.0.1 on my iPad 3. Rather perplexed right now.
I am missing a step to reproduce it. Something innocuous but critical. This is probably going to bother me till I figure it out. LOL
