Several pundits have published reports suggesting that there's a bug on the iPhone 5 and the fifth generation iPod touch that prevents response to touchscreen input after a user rapidly swipes his or her finger across the screen, diagonally. I haven't been able to duplicate the issue on my iPhone 5 here in the TechnoBuffalo offices, but our own Brandon Russell was able to recreate it. He doesn't seem to worried, however. "It stopped a little, but I'll never ever [make that motion]," he explained to me. "Once I took my finger off and put it right back it was fine."
TheNextWeb suggests it could be caused by Apple's implementation of a software feature that prevents a user from accidentally scrolling on the screen with his or her thumb, but also points out it might be related to the new in-cell displays used on the iPhone 5 and the fifth generation iPod touch. For now, however, it appears there's no real explanation.
