I have to reset the iPod to restart the device and then all is well. This doesn't happen with the device connected to AC power however. It's almost like only the bare minimum operating system components are loading and speech is not one of them.

It's a total tangent.

My patch resolves a problem with turning on the iPod. Once the iPod is
on and Rockbox is running, the patch should not make any difference.

When speech fails to work after a USB connection, that is a separate
bug. With r22668, speech works on my 30GB 5th generation iPod after a
USB connection. If you're running an older version of Rockbox, try
upgrading.
