Well, it would be useful if you could do a bit of analysis here,
you have too much random facts for anything to be relevant. For
example check that

 - 2.4.18: see if you can swap battery 1 in and out
 - same with 2.4.25
 - 2.4.18: see if you can swap battery 2 in and out
 - same with 2.4.25
 - do a few tests swapping from battery 1 to 2 and vice versa with
   both kernels

Do enough tests to have some statistic, it may not fail all the time,
could be only occasional. It's also possible that the problem is indeed
the low-charge sleep kicking too late, but it could be the kernel
not always properly shutting down some bit of HW
