Default Brightness Problem after Bios A05 upgrade - 06-19-2009, 03:48 PM

Hi all,
2 days ago I upgraded my Mini 9 Bios to A05 version. I'm using Dell Ubuntu flavour (8.04) that comes with it.
After the upgrade, each time I boot on battery, before the username/password screen is displayed, the brightness is pushed to 100%.
This is not happening if I boot on AC power. It remembers my previous settings.
I also tried to be on AC, adjust brightness, then unplug (screen goes to 50%) and re-adjust while on battery. It doesn't help. When I reboot on battery it pushes again to 100%

I read many threads but till now nothing helped me.
Anyone have a good suggestion?

Thanks in advance
