Works for us. Additionally, you could cc' smartphones-userland at linuxtogo.org
for similar topics.

Ideally this should not be a problem -- if we got uploading ephemeris without
disturbing the ublox4 working again, it should just take 3 seconds to
reaquire the fix.
Since this is broken hence disabled in FSO for some time (we will contact
ublox again for help), we might as well introduce a 'deferred shutdown'.
Open a ticket in trac.freesmartphone.org and we'll take care of that.
