That's not it, and it's revived, sort of.

I watched it during the charging process. Once it leaves the
battery-display really-low-power mode, the bootloader kicks in and
brings up rockbox... and rockbox then sits at the main menu, frozen
solid, spinning the disk constantly until the box runs so low on
power that it can't even boot up far enough to start charging.

I'm in emergency disk mode recharging now, and will try to see if
maybe r12988 fixes it (this is a crash, that's a crash, it looks
slightly suspicious).

Otherwise it's time to back down to 20061218 again, since I *know* that
works and I'm going on holiday away from computers in under a day.
