Only 11 pages of apps can be displayed.
iTunes 9.0.2 has an enhancement to improve app sorting by allowing you to move apps accessible only by the spotlight search to a visible page.

Thanks Jim, but I don't think the 11 page limit is the cause of this.
I have had more than 11 pages of apps for a long time, and the default apps (email, contacts, music, weather, maps, etc) have ALWAYS been displayed on the first 11 pages. In fact, I was unable able to move any of the default apps to pages beyond 11.
Also, the default apps are displayed in iTunes when viewing the iTouch device, under the apps tab. But in the present case, the "settings" app has disappeared entirely--it does not appear on the device or in the apps tab of iTunes on ANY page (including pages beyond 11). I can only find it using the search function on the iTouch itself.
I put off trying your suggestion, 'cause I knew it would be time consuming. I finally did it and my "settings" icon has reappeared. Naturally, it took a long time to get all my eleven visible pages of apps back into their previous order. I took screen shots of each page before resetting the home screen, to help me reorder them--it was tedious.
