Currently running r19940 but there doesn't seem to have been any chage in the power code for the gigabeat S recently.

The issue is that there is a regular clicking noise heard if DC power is connected while the battery is fully charged. This noise is not heard while the battery is charging. The same power adapter doesn't cause the same noise on an F.
This task depends upon

I've had some interference on my S if the headphone plug isn't pulled out about a millimeter. It's a bit damaged and so I get a poor grounding which gives bad FM and allows the disk to be heard. Having DC connected makes it worse. Our problem could be related but I'm not certain.
