Comment(by andy):

 Just before I went to bed Raster told me about the last changes not giving
 him "discharging" status but "not charging", I'll fix that today: that is
 1) issue.  Otherwise, I sat here for some time pushing and pulling the USB
 and waiting for the light to go out, monitoring current at the battery and
 it was OK.

 2) can be real charger decision or error on my side.  To confirm it, you
 can do

 cat /sys/devices/platform/bq27000-battery.0/power_supply/bat/current_now

 if the number is negative, it truly charges the battery.  But the number
 can be 4 -5 seconds old, so bear this in mind.

 3) is correct for the light, it did stop charge.  Taking battery out ->
 shutdown seems to be separate hardware problem we had for 6 months.
