When something wonky like this happens, the first thing I always try is rebooting the iPad.
Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.
It maybe a software issue, and it may very well be a hardware issue, but you will not know until you rule out all of the standard software fixes. This would be the first one. Try it. You have nothing to lose.iPad (3rd gen) Wi-Fi, iOS 6, 64GB WiFi

I gave that a try, but to no avail.
I even got desperate enough to try a factory reset. I erased all content and settings to see if it was something on the iPad wonking it around, but that hasn't worked either.
I think I'll go into the store and talk to them

I believe that is the best thing to do now. Your Mini is still under warranty and as long as you didn't accidentally cause the damage by dropping or or something like that - this will be covered under the warranty.
Good luck to you!

Dropped in at the local Genius Bar, they took a look at it, turns out it was a hardware issue and as I was still in warranty gave me a remanufactured iPad mini on the spot.
Cost to repair estimated at $217
Great service, positive experience, happy with outcome.
