Status Bar Indicators

Anyone else noticing that after updating to 1.1 that the battery indicator often shows an overstated level of charge? The other day I noticed that it was showing ~75% which I thought couldn't be right given how much I had used it that day. When I went into Settings | Device Info it was really only 50%. Shortly after checking, the indicator corrected itself. Another time it was showing around 50% when I had less than 30%.


A second issue is that my wireless indicator is constantly disappearing and re-appearing. Though I have yet to determine if the NC is actually losing connection or whether it's just an issue with the status bar indicator. Given the battery issue, I am thinking that the indicator is probably displaying incorrectly. Note that I have never had any of the wireless connection issues that other NC owners have or are having.

I don't have the battery indicator problem, but the connection problem. Before the update I had no problem connecting, or staying connected. Since the update, when I lay my NC flat on the table it looses connection, but the indicator does not always show that.

I figured it's  because I have been reading for a long time maybe and it did not have to refresh?

Because when I get out of the book screen it "fixes the status.
