FS#11444 - Sansa Fuze V2 USB connection kills the player

I used Rockbox on a Sansa Fuze (V2) player.
The website said the usb won't work, and thee bootloader will boot up the OF if is neccessary because of USB cable plug in.

I plugged in the USB cable, while Rockbox was running.
The player's screen went black, and Windows XP Professional SP3 didn't recognized a new USB device.

I tried various methods to switch the player on. Nothing worked.
I tried to restart by holding the power button up for 10, 15, 30, 150, 263 seconds. Nothing worked.

I found this thread for this.
It says (and on IRC the users said) that I have to wait for the battery's discharge, which can take up to 6 days, because it was full of charge.

Please, fix this extremely bad bug, or warn users for this on the site, at least.
Now, because it I have to wait a week or so to use my Fuze… help.. it makes me (and lot of people who already played this) very confused.

We disabled a rebooting into the OF on USB insert a while ago.

Since rebooting for USB seems to occasionally cause problems, we should probably just disable it. We'll hopefully have our own USB mode soon enough.

Does the problem happen with rebooting though?

My first guess was plug detection (but i have nothing to back this off)
