Default Zen Micro clock totally out of whack

I've managed to build two operational Zen Micros (both 5GB, one red, one black) out of 5 nonworking ones.

If I set the clock correctly one day, I find it's gone forward by as much as a full year on one unit when I check the following day, and it tends to be off by a few hours (backwards) on the other one in the same time period.

This isn't terribly much of a problem because I don't much use the clock on my PMPs (without it being in the title bar of the Micro, the device may as well not have one to begin with), but I'm curious to know exactly what isn't working here. RTC circuitry itself rarely screws up, but the batteries which drive them do. There is a really tiny battery on the back of the Zen Micro motherboard so I'm wondering if that's the clock battery (or if the clock is just maintained by the main battery, as seems to be the case with the Vision:M but not with the Vision W)

So...anyone have ideas? Is this indicative of a larger problem elsewhere?

Both are running the MTP firmware.
