There's kind of a bug there: in a wall outlet, the iPod believes USB's being
active, so switch to usb mode, then realize nothing's coming, and reboot...
to realize there's usb plugged in, so enter usb mode again, but then... And
so on & forever.

This, if you switched rockbox off to recharge. Workaround is Not to switch
off, and plug to the wall while holding "menu" key pressed, so it does not
switches mode.

I use a JBL sort of iPodBase loudspeaker set to recharge at night, spare me
the hassle of switching it to the laptop when I don't need to work the files
on it. Can't switch it completely off though, has to stay "on".
