How can it charge over USB if it gets full discharged?
AFAIK, USB device is not powered by USB host until it is configured.
So gadged must be operational to charge over usb.

BTW, this is the exact behaviour I'm observing with my old ipaq running
Familiar Linux: it could be charged via USB while it it operational, but if
it gets full discharged, USB can't help and power choord has to be used.
