SD1 doesn't remember its date after battery charge

Hello people,

My new SD1M has a peculiar problem. Every time I recharge my battery (between 3 and 4 hours) and I put the recharged battery back into the SD, the camera lost its date preferences. Not the language, that stays in the chosen language.

Now, the manual reads as follows:

The camera’s internal clock is powered by a capacitor that receives its charge from the camera’s battery. If the camera is left without a battery for an extended period of time, such as after prolonged storage, the internal clock will need to be reset.

This is very strange, because I see 'an extended period of time' not as a few hours. Any experiences on this, or tips?

TIA and greetings,
