I think this main reason is our test environment is badly synced 
(factory/lab/developers/test software).

For my GTA02 it's GPS always fixed around 1 minutes, and my SD card was 
format into vfat + ext2 format for other testing, so could not used as 
normal SD card stay at boot, so most of time won't have SD card in while 
doing GPS testing.

We did also have big fight internal over last week for about test 
specification and why GPS when wrong in field. And we still working on 
possible hardware improvement and software solutions.

Please check Andy's branch for SD clk, in kernel list there are more
