In my GE settings I have View > Show Navigation > Never. This presumably doesn't apply to Street View, which always shows a few unobtrusive items in the top right corner, including the camera icon, the name of the photo, 'Exit photo', and below these a set of 4 arrows for navigation. (BTW, can even these be switched off?)

However, none of them work. I can navigate by other more familiar methods, so the only one that matters to me is the Exit Photo button, to quickly leave Street View. The only way I can get this (and the others) to work is by setting View > Show Navigation > Always, when it becomes operative again.

Anyone able to confirm this behaviour please? Is it a bug?
