You may be onto something there!
Not that is may be a solution...time will tell,
but you have a point.
I restored and decided to be app free,
so I deleted them from itunes and the recycle bin and recycled.
or so I thought.
I did gointo Music,
etc and there they were still listed,
some duplicated such as Break and Break 1.
Just deleted them an emptied the recycle bin again.
Once Apple comes up with a fix i will restore the apps,
or at least the better ones that i really liked.
just too bad it`s not working out.
someone at Apple should have had their homework checked before turning it in.
