The 50g draws $$29\,\mu\rm A$$ when turned off. However, to my great surprise it draws 48 mA when turned on and doing nothing. Is this the expected power consumption? Has the latest firmware caused a problem, or do I have an "odd" machine?

I'm not sure what these figures mean. Are you suggesting that 49g+ draws batteries flat even when turned off? Mine (it is 49g+) has been off for a lot longer than a year with the SD card in and batteries were OK.

And yes, Claudio, I've got one in near mint condition partly because it was not used much at all - I didn't like the whole concept of that calculator.
