Ubuntu 8.04 + Logitech iTouch Keyboard = Dead Battery?

How is this possible? I've got a Logitech iTouch wireless keyboard that's been working fine for years now and with Ubuntu 7.10 for 5 months, but after upgrading to Ubuntu 8.04, my keyboard batteries have gone flat 4 or 5 times now. One or more of the batteries seems to "short out" to 0.1v or even go -ve. I've tried 2 sets of NiMH batteries, one brand new and one that had been working fine for years. Could it be anything other than a coincidence?

Update: After about 2 weeks of the batteries dying every day or so, I've now been on the same charge for about 2 weeks now. So, I've no idea what update fixed it, but it's better now!
