Oh, I was reading in powermgmt.c and in the init function, it says

    /* if the battery is nearly empty, start charging immediately */
    if (power_history[POWER_HISTORY_LEN-1] < BATTERY_LEVEL_DANGEROUS)
        charger_enable(true);

That was a version from 22. July (the build I use personally ATM),
but that "?" battery display behaviour is already there.

BTW: I know that people ever complain about wrong battery display
values (not realizing that only an estimation is possible) and that this
is the reason for the "?" display, but I personally prefer the old
behaviour. Maybe an option for that would be useful ("Display
inaccurate battery value after startup: YES/NO").

Bye, Uwe.
