Yes GPS chip is very "sticky", even when depowered for some time it
seems to hold state and not act in a deterministic way. It makes it
hard to know if the last thing you changed is responsible for the
behaviour staying the same or changing, or if it was going to do that
anyway. That makes debugging it very confused.
