The new boot loader handles it, but there is still a problem
in the rockbox charging code. The charging does not start immediately,
it waits one cycle of the power thread before it starts charging and
if the battery is completly empty the recorder will die before charging
starts. The workaround is to hold F1 before attaching adapter.
