This has been an issue bugging me for a few days. I basically have a view called from UIViewController that is handling the orientation changes (in terms of looks and layout) just fine. But my issue is that when the orientation change occurs the UIView's user interaction is disabled. I'm not sure if I missed something in the documentation but I wouldn't think this should remained locked after the animation. The orientation changes and UIView lock is not 100% consistant, sometimes it remains locked after orientation changes and sometimes not. If the lock does occur, I can change the orientation back to what it was and it is fine. Am I missing something very simple here?
