Of course it is, but it's a hardware bug:

Make sure that the battery never discharges completely. This is an issue
the internal charging circuitry can not be turned on until the FreeRunner has
booted, and booting through USB power alone does not work.
(If you have the newest kernel images, you should be safe due to a
software fix.)
