    Apple seems to have broken a couple of things in Safari for a web app launched from a touch icon.

    1) scaling of web apps

    We have the following header:

    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width,user-scalable=no" />

    In 3.2, this scaled the display smaller.

    In 4.2, it scales portrait mode but not landscape mode, so the application no longer fits when the iPad is rotated.

    2) startup image:

    <link rel="apple-touch-startup-image" href="img/loading.png"/>

    In 3.2, this showed in both landscape and portrait mode.

    In 4.2, the image is displayed only in portrait mode.

    Are there work arounds? As yet undocumented meta elements?
