I'm sorry, but I simply don't believe you. The ONLY possible effect
of that bit, barring bugs in the chip, is to cause it to report an
error and disable Vcc to the socket under some circumstances. You can
look it up yourself in the chip's data sheet, which is conveniently
available from the TI web site.
