NTLK battery warning on 120 v2.

Most but not every time time my wife turns on her 120 v.2 Messagepad,
she receives a warning:

Battery. The backup battery is dead or missing. You need to replace
the backup battery immediately or you will lose the information in
your Newton.

Well, the little backup battery was just changed this summer and I
just measured the new battery and it's giving a reading of 3.29 volts.

Isn't this about right? I tried to polish the battery terminals, but
no improvement.
Anyone with any suggestions that might help.
