yes... quite strange...

I will try to do more tests to be sure of how much it pulls when off.
And if I can find another charger, I'll try too (or with my computer
when on vista -no driver-)...

Maybe this charger is not so dumb... or rather even "dumber" than I
thought after all ! ;-)  I do no remember with which phone it was
originally shipped...
Might be that under certain conditions the phone recognize the
resistance making it think it is its wall charger....
