On my iP6+, the network activity spinner in the top left corner of the status bar continues to spin in Safari despite the fact that the page - and any/all background pages - are fully loaded.

Even if I close all pages/tabs and I'm looking at a page of just bookmarks, the spinner will continue to turn.

I can sometimes get it to stop by closing Safari from the multitasking screen or by restating the phone, but eventually it will start spinning persistently again at some point during normal usage.

Occurs on wifi or cell data (on known good connections). iOS 8.0.1. GSM (AT&T) 128GB space gray iP6+ model. No other connectivity issues. Using the SIM included with the phone on a fully provisioned AT&T account.

Any thoughts? Anyone else see this? Just a bug or an indicator of a more significant problem?
