Despite previous comments on this thread, this bug is actually in the
current CVS branch, as I get the same problem if I enable Idle Poweroff.

It is always worth checking this out before submitting bug reports, so
that we can be sure whether the problem is in the main code, or due to an
unsupported patch. This is especially true when using a firmware that
contains several patches from different sources, such as the ones Fred is
uploading!

I repeat, this is a bug in the main code, not due to an external patch!
