Yes, that's what happens when it 'soft' reboots... It's the 'status bar' app and it doesn't automatically reload with the rom. I find sometimes it reloads after a bit, but others, it does not.
From what I can tell, apps throwing errors (and forcing the reboot) will prevent it from reloading, but reboot from system clog/crash or overheating will reload it.
If that happens, just reboot again and it'll load. Annoying, for sure. Fwiw, I don't have that problem on the BP rom.
