The weird thing is that the power icon in the tray brings up a box that says that battery 1 is at 0% and not charging, whereas battery 2 is at the usual 97% and, as expected, not charging.
Does anyone have an idea how I can tell Windows that there's only one battery and that the reading for battery 1 is bogus???
And I have no idea if the power display is Lenovo's or Windows'.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
Interesting (and fast!) suggestion. Didn't see anything, but I pushed the slot open and blew it out with my air compressor. No improvement. But thanks for the idea.
Does it misbehave in other operating systems?

Not the deck slot - see previous reply. It's a dual-boot machine, and the behavior is similar on the 8.1 partition, aside from the bogus battery being #2 rather than #1.
As the light flashes even after power down, unless i temporarily disconnect AC and pull the battery, this must mean it's a Thinkpad issue and not a Windows issue. Upon reconnecting power, the light doesn't flash until the next bootup.

Sounds like a planar issue, as in charging circuit going haywire. If it doesn't really bother you, leave it as is. Otherwise you're looking at a board swap.
