Mmm, I've seen every kind of weird behaviour with ATX power supplies,
please try this: just for testing purposes switch the power supply for
another one -either a used one or a new one, it doesn't matter- and try to
reproduce the glitch.
The idea behind this is sometimes ATX power supplies 'go dumb' and you need
to fully discharge them in order to reset them (sort of) - that's why it
works right when you unplug it.
