To stop rearranging apps (i.e. after holding the finger down on an app so that they all start to shake, make them stop shaking again), the home button is used. Is there a gesture that does the same?

On iOS 5: Pull Down the Notification-Center!

You don't have to completely pull it down, just a bit!

So a little swipe from Top to the Button solves your problem!
