Firmware reflash disables the EC which means all buttons are inactive. 
So having to disconnect the battery is expected if the reboot after 
reflash fails.

I don't think this isan issue with this firmware but rather a nagging 
issue with the 1.5.  I've seen this happen on other firmware upgrades. 
I believe its related to bug #10073.  If you happen to find a way to 
reproduce it on demand then we would like to hear about it but otherwise 
its known.  Thanks for the report though.
