First, check what battery you are actually using. It's going to show
+ (TH) - or
+ (CC) - where the contacts are.

If you are indeed using a CC battery, then something is broken. I heard
about that once before, so you're not the only one. Perhaps the supplier
(and the CC battery internals) changed or it's simpy a bug in the
kernel. In that case you need to bring that up to the kernel experts
(opening a bug and/or posting to the kernel development list).
