Yes, the current u-boot doesn't work properly with the mains charger.
I'm testing some patches that should improve u-boot's handling of
deeply-discharged batteries, but it's still a work-in-progress. Watch
the kernel list for updates.
For now, I would recommend to either use a USB cable to a PC or try
holding the Aux button when you insert the charger cable (so that the
NOR u-boot is loaded).
