I just did a test, to check a theory I had. An XCode project I have that was built for 3.1.3 shows the problem where if you fast app switch back to it, it starts from scratch. I built it again for SDK4, and now it remembers its state, without me having to do any code changes.

So, it does seem there are multitasking fixes in the new SDK. The best case for us all would be if Apple changed their rules to state that the apps must comply with whatever OS4 features they want it to, and that they stop worrying so much about the programming language that was used. Then Rev could make the fixes needed so that our iPhone Rev apps do the right thing when it comes to multitasking.
