Hi Nicolas,

I'd sure like to know what version of hardware you have. There was some 
discussion of adding a larger capacitor somewhere, I'm not sure if that 
was the only modification or in fact whether it helped at all. There was 
also a lot of work being done on the software side by delaying powering 
up various components until sufficient power was confirmed.
