never had a chance to read all post, feel free to use my pics to explain to Apple, im a dev but wont be near a comp tomorrow.
That's fine, it happened to you so you know how this bug affects the phone. My post was a little confusing anyway, the pics help explain it better to everyone. I am going to try to replicate it before I submit a bug report to Apple since they will want extensive details about it, but if I get it to happen again and still can't take screen shots I will definitely use yours, thanks :)

I wish the phone would LET you do this when you wanted to. Like organizing the icons like you can your computer's desktop and move the icons where ever the hell you want.

The weird thing was that the way they minimized behind the dock was almost like it was intentional and not a bug. So maybe there is something else they are planning where we can hide them all. But they kept getting deeper behind the dock(2nd picture above), then not visible at all, and ending up like bluedribs first picture where the bottom row wasn't visible.

Can you scroll up or down when this happens? That's the only way I can see it being intentional.

No I couldn't and it is definitely a bug. I just meant that it was odd how smoothly it minimized behind the dock.

It happened again, errr :( I hope this is a short beta and this gets addressed very soon with beta 3, it is getting annoying. And once again I couldn't take a screenshot, but now I realize for some reason my phone won't take them if I tap home and sleep/wake at the same time. I have to hold home then tap the sleep/ wake button. Too bad I don't have another 3GS to record how they minimize behind the dock.

Not quite the same but weird none the less. I was playing that Slugger game on my 3GS and i clicked the home button and it went back to the springboard then I clicked the sleep button and the phone froze.

....It gives the dock that "Digital Camo" look ;) But it rendered the phone useless until a hard reset. I haven't been successful in reproducing it. My battery was at 16% and I quit the game to plug it in and this happened.
