I downloaded and installed 021204-0022. I haven't played with it as
extensively as I would have liked. I did use it yesterday, and found
that I only had one lockup. I'll experiment more on it and see how it

One thing I did notice is that there seems to be some kind of battery
reading issue. I used it on batteries part of the way in to work and in
the data center (~1hr), then on the way home (~1hr). The battery meter
read 2 bars. I did not charge it last night, and when I checked the
level this morning, it said 17%. I plugged it in for 5 minutes, and
checked it again, and the battery percentage was at 87%. In the minute
its taken me to type this line, it has gone to 90% with the unit running
on batteries.
