In my particular case it was the battery holder area that was causing the most problem. I did alot of moveing of the light head unit, wire and battery. It isn't really the batteries but maybe the electronic noise being created by the light engine dimming the light that is being broadcast down the wire out the battery like a little antenna.
In my testing I don't think I could put the lighthead right next to the computer but on my bike the computer seems to ignore the lighthead as long as it doesn't have line of site or was within 3". The wire was fine as long as it didnt' get in the path between the computer and the sensor but the battery is completely open and even the orientation when it was in one of those behind the stem bags was an issue.
If I had that light, which looks pretty sweet, I'd try seeing if moving the battery/wire/light away from the computer helps. it is a free potential fix at least.
