I couldn't confirm this. I heard from this problem from people with PC
laptops, but I see the battery load in the task bar of my window manager
and I noticed, it must fall under 95% before a new charge cycle begins.
With PC laptops a new cycle starts by 99% which leads to the effect
you've described.

At me my ibook wobbles if I remove the battery. You don't have this
problem? What version of ibook you have? G4?
