if you mean that the GSM is directly connected to the battery, than it
is no hardware BUG, more a bad feature. Not really a big problem because the
modem should be on all the time...
I never heared any save information on another hardware bug/mistake in
the GTA01 seller version! Have i missed one?

There were rumors of a bug in the GSM firmware causing the GSM modem not
to enter a power saving mode, BUT I REALLY DON'T KNOW IF IT'S TRUE!

Are there any other rumors or so that Michael should clear?
