It is... unlikely. But, yes, can happen. We are currently testing the new board with the integrated IMU. It will take some time before releasing it.
Do you want us to you a cable replacement? If so, let us know at:

Nah, don't go to that trouble for a stubby wiring harness. I appreciate the offer, but I can definitely fabricate something that will work. The robot works fantastic otherwise.

I'm still not convinced there's a broken wire either. There's just something unique about the route of that wire that's causing something to lose connection...somewhere. Even when I do get it to fire up with that connector, the slightest bump sends it into a frenzy. I may just try shortening it a touch so it doesn't touch the top cover, but will still route in a nice, clean arc.

We're using the B-Robot and the Sphere-o-bot for a local TV news spotlight our makerspace is doing on Arduino controlled robots. The Arduino jumpers will get the job long enough for us to get through that. I see an iBoardBot in our future. Keeping an eye on the Blimpduino and that 3D display, too. We set up a table at public events to drive membership and our summer programs. The robots are always winners a the booth.

Please have a look at your Arduino female connector strips (IO-femal headers and so). At my Leonardo board I had seen many faulty soldered joints. I had to scrape and clean every single one and then to solder again. Cold solder joints can make nasty problems.
