By the way, like, will this ever be fixed?  Is this a priority?  Or maybe 
it's a hardware issue that cannot be resolved at all, but maybe the 
preconditions for it can be avoided in software?

It'd be nice to get some more comment from the OpenMoko folks on things 
like this.  Same thing for power management more generally.

Thanks!  I appreciate that building the phone from scratch has been a 
daunting task with many successes so far and many roadblocks as well.
