Anyone else noticed their Location Services Icon in the status bar stays on all the time?

Is this a known bug? I have checked and nothing is using Location Services at that time.

Thoughts?

Mine is on (outline arrow) but I have a location-based reminder set. As the post right above mentioned it is possible to figure out which app is doing it.

Go to location services > system services and see if anything is on.
Not to be difficult, but as I mentioned I checked and nothing is using location services, per 'settings->privacy->location services'

All are grey or off. Grey meaning has been used in the last 24 hours.

When you to to Location Services screen, scroll all the way to the bottom and tap System Services (if you're not looking for it you won't know it's there).

Also, mine was doing the same thing. I noticed that Setting Time Zone was causing the location Arrow to stay on in the status bar. I don't know If that's a big because I updated from iOS 5 instead of doing a fresh install.
