Thanks for the attention John (man, don't you ever sleep?)

I don't doubt you, but none of these apps were running at the time (with the possible exception of BBWeather, I sometimes accidentally send this to the background instead of shutting it down completely)
Maybe we could start a list/FAQ of apps verified to work properly with 4.2.
Didn't work for me, and I followed it to the letter (many times).
