4.1 Beta 2 got rid of the X on the mark reading complete so that we don't inadvertently turn off the reading plan filter. This is a very good move.

However, it introduced a new problem for a minority of users. My wife and I have the same reading plans (One is Jacob OT; the other is Kiki OT; we have the same thing for the new testament). This lets us each read the same thing each day but each keep track of our progress independently. I could foresee other scenarios where reading plans happened to overlap. 

There is no way to determine which reading plan is being marked read. I used to be able to hover over the X that was removed and it would tell me which reading plan corresponded with that bar (like this http://screencast.com/t/NmM3ZTkxYjY). However, now that that has been removed the only hoverable prompt that is left is "Mark this reading as read.": as in this video: http://screencast.com/t/NjBlNWQ3N

I recommend that the text "Mark this reading as read" be changed to "Mark this reading from [reading plan name] as read." This recent change makes my reading plan scheme with my wife difficult/annoying to maintain as I now have to go back to the homepage to mark my plan as read rather than directly from within the reading.

Yes, the "Turn off  "Read plan name" visual filter" tip is gone along with the 'X'.  I will see if the name can be added to the hover tip for the Stop Reading "Mark Read" link.

This will be implemented in the next beta. As an example, when you hover over "Mark Read' the tip will say:  Mark "Read ESV in one year" as read.
