I also have experienced this on my iPad mini 5. It seems to happen only if I use BSI for a certain amount of time then it wont let me go to the next line and it stops it. then I have to use the roter to get back in to it.

I have experienced this bug quite often on my iPhone SE 2020, but not every time I erase a word. However, when Braille Screen Input suddenly stops, I simply turn the rotor back to it and carry on.

I think the problem might have to do with the fact that it's now possible to use the two-finger scrub to exit BSI. Seems to me that iOS is misinterpreting a two-finger swipe left (delete a word) or right (go to a new line) as a scrub gesture.
