This was my issue.  I had had a hard reset and a couple of reboots  
with 'dead battery' messages when I had alarms set in Alarm Clock.   
Although my batteries were low, they had not yet gotten so low to  
give the 'change battery' message.  However, since changing them out,  
I have gotten no more errors.  It may have been the batteries (a set  
of NIMHs that are possibly up to 10 years old) or maybe some contact  

At any rate, it appears for now that the symptoms went away with  
fresh batteries, so the patch is most likely not related to the issue  
I had.
