Has anyone else encountered a problem with the camera launch button on the lockscreen in iOS 6 ?

Mine was working and I don't know when it stopped, but now if I tap the camera icon on the lockscreen it doesn't launch the camera app; it just makes the bottom of the screen 'bounce' up a little (partially exposing the Siri button) and then down again.

I've tried on/off and soft reset (it's an iPhone 4S by the way) I'm loathed to fully restore the device just for this. Has anyone else seen the issue, resolved it or have any idea what to try next to resolve it?!

Actually, having just tried it again: it's not Siri that it briefly and partially exposes, it's the camera app. If doesn't make much difference though, as it's still a pain in the butt!

Don't just tap the camera icon. Slide it up and your camera will appear.

Haha. I take it that's how it now works! Maybe I was wrong and just thought I'd used it since the iOS 6 update. I am an iDiot !
