Arduino Due Design Flaw: Due Won't Start After Power-Off-On, Requires Reset

I had noticed the problem with resetting the Arduino Due for a while and finally started looking into a solution. In detail, the Arduino Due doesn't reliably start running its sketch after power is applied. This applies when power is applied per USB or through the external power supply. If power is removed for less than five [...]
