I would assume this circuitry is always powered, maybe to allow for a faster boot of the camera, since turning off the camera doesn't stop the error condition. We know the SD card slot is always powered as inserting a card when the power is off does cause the write status light to come on, so it is possible there are other things in a low power state as well. This could be why pulling the battery is the only way to manually override what it happening.

I stopped the problem by switching off the camera then waiting for a few seconds. I didn't pull either of the batteries out.
