When I picked up the word of power at (spoiler)

Arcwind Point

the quest didn't get removed from my quest log. If I select it the arrow still points to the wall even though there is no word to collect any more. The monks at High Hrothgar won't give me a new word power quest since they don't realize that I finished this one.

I can see in the Unofficial Elder Scrolls pages that this is a known issue. http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Arcwind_Point

My question is now, is there anything I can do about it? I don't want to reload a previous save since I have done much since it happened. Didn't realize until hours afterwards what had happened.

Do Bethesda usually patch these kinds of bugs?

Or do I just have to live with it?

Note: I am on Xbox360 so the Unofficial Dawnguard Patch is not an option.

If you're playing on PC, you can use the console command SetStage FreeFormHighHrothgarA 20 to complete the quest and allow you to take further quest, install the Unofficial Skyrim Patch to prevent such bugs in the future.

If you're not on PC, then you are out of luck, unless you transfer your save to a PC and fix the bug there as described above.

Hi Kotekzot. As note in the question I am playing on the kexbox360. –  Jonas Söderström Nov 22 '12 at 15:03
And I don't have Skyrim on my PC so a transfer is not something I am desperate enough to try, not yet anyway. :) Thanks for the answer. –  Jonas Söderström Nov 22 '12 at 15:09
