eMac - spare power button found inside :/

I recently overclocked my ATI 800Mhz eMac from 800Mhz to 1.33Ghz. Anyhow, in the process of stripping it down, I noticed something odd; there was a power button, unconnected, jammed down inside a gap in the front of the chassis - yes, an eMac power button, complete with the tiny circular PCB and connector socket. The pushable surface had a permanent marker line on it in blue - I can only assume that this button was some kind of reject, but had slipped down inside the machine, accidentally, at the manufacturing plant.

Anyone else had a similair experience?
