I just fixed the reset problem the AKOI2C has had ever since its beginning. It turned out to be an uninitialized state variable. On a POR, the register file gets cleared with 0's. But on an MCLR reset, the user registers in the register file are untouched. The uninitailized variable caused the AKOI2C to sometimes reset into an indeterminant state, which would cause the chip to lock up and quit responding. I'm annoyed it took me this long to find it.
