Don't ship GTA02v5 without the rework

Exactly.  Every cell phone I've ever had has contained obvious firmware
bugs, firmware or otherwise.  The difference is with openness you are
far more likely to find and resolve the bugs.   

I hope it ships, it would be crazy to not ship with such a minor issue
that can be soft fixed.

Welcome to the real world.
Do you really belive you get totally optimal hardware without known bugs
with any vendor? I don't thing so. It's always a judgement call and you
just don't see what is know suboptimal with other vendors.

I think one small element that's off most of the time drawing a bit more
energy than absolutly needed isn't the end of the world.
There will always be better hardware on the horizont with computer
devices... If you try to get "perfect" you will never be able to buy
With openmoko you just get a tiny bit more information showing so.

Well, it's up to you to decide what to do. But honestly i think this is
bit out of proportion. 
Did anybody try to calculate how much this added draw will shorten the
uptime of the phone? if not how can you claim it's a blocker problem?
