Harald Welte told me at the Chaos Camp that the device would reset 
itself in a very fast loop. Actually in audible regions.
It would power on, cpu would start and initiate some checks. Finds out 
that there is no battery power and reset. (Well at least something like 
I belive the cpu was somehow dependent on something that was powered 
only via battery. Not sure...

But as far as i remember it was then planned to fix this with later 
versions. Which is probably what has been done.

However. Fast reboots would probably not be too harmful.
But hearing electric systems make audible noises makes me cringe. I 
don't want to have this happen to my device. :)
