are there any known issues with the tethered jailbreak for iOS 5 on the iPhone 4?

For the noobs:
Tethered Jailbreak - requires a computer to revive your phone if it reboots/battery dies. You will lose all functionality of the phone.
Untethered Jailbreak - Your phone will reboot and be Jailbroken as normal.
Baseband preservation: this depends on how you jailbreak your phone. Pwnage Tool (Mac) & Sn0wbreeze (PC) create custom firmware/IPSW to preserve the baseband for an unlock.
Tethered and Untethered jailbreak doesn't affect your baseband.
No jailbreak issues on iOS 5 that I've seen except for incompatible tweaks.
redsn0w which is for Mac and PC will start to include baseband preservation (Pwnage Tool) in its program. It's not available yet but @Musclenerd expects it to be done very soon!

I'm on 4.3.1 right now, and I would LOVE to upgrade to 5.0 (who wouldn't, amirite?). Let's say I forgo the JB process and install a clean iOS 5 on my i4 (preserving baseband isn't an issue for me; I'm on AT&T). Would I be able to jailbreak 5.0 when they release an untethered JB down the road (I'm assuming yes, what with all the DFU/restore jazz), or should I stick with my current firmware until an untethered solution is released?

Nice but I'll wait for untethered.

I'm not sure what Musclenerd meant either BUT as long as you use Pwnage or Sn0wbreeze, you can keep ur baseband.
Thanx Simon, didn't know that!

I'm considering going tethered for now... but is there some sort of easy workaround that does not always need a computer to restore? Such as an online safari based JB, that you can quickly do over the itouch itself?

If it reboots when you are away from your computer, the phone will probably hang and become unusable until you get back to your computer.
If it reboots while you're at your computer, you re-run the JB tool to get it back to normal (usable phone, usable jailbreak).
if you reboot away from your computer, the phone may recover in a usable, operational mode, but without any JB software or tools available. It's called a semi-tethered boot, and it works for some people sometimes; but not reliably in any case.
