Flashing red power button / Reboot problem

I just had the flashing red power button / reboot issue. I thought this was fixed in 2.33?
Running 2.39 / 6400M. As best I remember this is the first time I have had this problem even w/ earlier versions running.

    Did the radio end up booting?

    No it didn't boot up on it's own. I had to hit the power button to get it boot back up and operational. Thing is it flashed red twice several times, relays started clicking, screen went black then the power light flashed green but it didn't boot up. I had to hit the power button to shut it down and it said on screen that it was shutting down. After I hit power button again to restart it booted up fine.

    It sounds like just an anomaly, there are several processors in the radio and they may not have been hand shacking correctly.
    Keep an eye on it, and see if it happens again.

    Two red flashes means software crash. Sh*t happens, reboot it and move on.
