OpenMoko dead battery tip

Quite often, if you leave battery in OpenMoko for too long, it goes totally dead -- OV on terminals, internal protection kicked in, impossible to charge in OpenMoko. But put it into nokia 6230 (yes, it fits)
connect charger. Voila, battery that had 0V on its terminals now has something over 3V, and can be (very slowly) charged in OpenMoko.
