I have a similar problem with my MackBook Pro 15" old type (1.8Ghz). The battery was replaced at an Apple store in June 2010 after developing the won't hold much charge problem after a OS X update I believe about 10.6.6(I did not tack note at the time the problem devleoped). It was replaced befor reaching the state of the new one. The new(current) battery worked fine until I had to reinstall 10.6 and it auto updateed to 10.6.7. I don't know how but it appears that one of the updates changed something (perhaps firmware) that caused the battery to fail in the same sort of way. The problem I have is I now live in Greece and can not return to the Apple store that replaced battery. According to Apples website Greece dose not exist so getting a new replacement is a problem.
