   OK, I think I've found something. If I boot up Debian with LXDE (with
xscreensaver and pcmanfm uninstalled) and just run the test there, I once in
a while get 53 mA, but usually it's 55 mA. Now I stopped some userspace
# /etc/init.d/apmd stop
# /etc/init.d/nodm stop

$ sleep 120 && cat

   I.e. 8 mA lost because of something in userspace. :-(

   I'm working on CPU frequency scaling support. Slowing the CPU to 100 MHz
and 1.1 V core power supply gives:

$ sleep 120 && cat
