I just compiled a new kernel from 3.2-gta04 (bb54650b).  I'm seeing an
unadvertised thing with powering on, which I thought I should report.

When I press the power button to power on, the GTA04 doesn't completely
boot up.  I see the splash penguin; then the screen blanks and the LED
goes green; then the LED goes off; and then nothing - it appears now
that the GTA04 has completely switched itself off again.

(This is with the USB cable unplugged.)

Now, if I open the back cover and remove and replace the battery, the
GTA04 boots up normally and fully.  So the problem above is not caused
by low battery.

Any thoughts / ideas?  This is quite repeatable, so I could get
diagnostics if you tell me how...
