It appears that not only does the IOS Updates erase local storage (webkit or HTML5 local storage) but now it is randomly going about cleaning out local databases when it needs more room. The file location for local storage has been moved into a new area it appears and this is now fair game for the clean-up routines.


This essentially prohibits any developer of WebKit applications to use the local device for persistant information such as settings.  A real showstopper for WebKit based applications.
