with the a480 for years i connected it when in shoot to the computer, it would always revert to play and i could pull the images off..until i got large enough cards and shoots for the file limit.
thought canon designed it that way.
since i can't remember it ever leading to trouble i woudn't think it would hurt the cam.
and it's a test of what happens when the connection breaks or is hot plugged :)
the pc might, but won't do it anymore, promise.
frustration is a key ingredient in progress

I'm sure Canon did, and it's totally fine if you're just using the camera manually. However, my experience is the automatic switch can cause problems with subsequent switches under CHDK control.
Don't forget what the H stands for.
