    When in an app and you pull down the notification center down a bit and hold it there and try to take a screenshot, the phone just locks. However when you unlock the device, the lock screen will get whisked away with the multitasking animation

    It doesn't work for me. Which app were you in? And how much do you pull the notification center down?

    For me it locks the phone when I try take a screenshot with the notification centre pulled halfway down, however it unlocks normally - I used Mail :)

    I noticed it in Settings and tried different apps and they all triggered the bug. Also as long as you hold the notification center at any point in the screen it worked.

    Today I got it to work once every ten times. Very strange.

    [update: It seems to work more often when NC is almost at the bottom of the screen and you let slide down on its own and take a screen shot just before it touches the bottom of the screen.]
