Yes I have two batteries (initially both charged, and after I got
the problem when swapping #1 to #2, I did the test with #2 only,
just to be sure that swapping battries could still work under

No, this is not the same scenario. In this case, the machine was
automatically put to sleep because of the low charge; that's why
I had to change the battery.
BTW, I've just noticed another difference: I had kernel 2.4.25 at
this time (for the #1 -> #2 change). But as the default kernel is
2.4.18 on my machine and I had to power the machine on, it booted
with this kernel 2.4.18, and the test with the second battery
occurred with this kernel.
