[QtMoko] Freerunner making a squealing noise

Hey all,

Has anyone else ever experienced a loud squealing or shrieking noise
on their Freerunner that begins some amount seconds (varies) after
starting or receiving a phone call? The noise rapidly gets louder once
it starts and within about a second is much louder than the voice.
Both parties can hear the noise and it makes communication very
difficult. I first noticed it on the 18th which was a few days after I
updated from QTEI to QTMoko (FSO variant 20090707). This Freerunner
has not been buzz fixed, but this is not a buzzing issue. The noise
sounds like no kind of RF interference or feedback that I have ever
heard - the pitch is not fixed and the closest thing I can think of to
compare it to is the wind whistling through some trees, but much
louder and quite a bit harsher.


On the day *I* go to work for Microsoft, faint oinking sounds will be
heard from far overhead, the moon will not merely turn blue but
develop polkadots, and hell will freeze over so solid the brimstone
will go superconductive.
