Yes, I understand. I got the impression it was a design flaw and not something 
that could be addressed,  that's all. I could be completely wrong though. 
Maybe the phone can go into some kind of holding pattern when close to flat or 
something, to mitigate the effect. If it's something a u-boot update can fix 
then that would awesome ... but I'm not holding my breath.
