I think there still are som inits that are not working (always) in the
firmware.
If you have your charger plugged in,enough power in the batteries and the
disk spinning , trying to shutdown rockbox gives the expected result,
shutdown and reboot
to rockbox.

Start rockbox, plugin the charger, wait untill the disk has stopped and
shutdown
the unit and you'll get an ata -32 error.
The only thing to then is to unplug the charger before rebooting.

For me this is a very minor issue but hopefully this info can be of help
when you
get around to add a "startup charging screen". But before start coding
again, Jörg,
take same time off, you have deserved it.
