You presented an excellent explanation of the possiblities. Yes, I have been in Russia when Condi visited and she never spoke Russian, at least at those activities on TV.

while it's within the realm of the possible, no way is it probable that someone would accidentally leave out the middle two letters, a prefix, in a word. it couldn't really be a typo.

i would say ONLY a native russian speaker would make this error. it's an error by analogy--re-->пере + load-->грузить. We don't really say "reload my computer" (maybe "reload the program" and certainly "reload the web page"), but a native speaker of russian who has spent a lot of time in the US might come up with such a word, then translate it verbatim into russian.

The use of the verb "перегрузить" in that meaning is apparently inappropriate, but some may still use it as jargon (like мама (mommy) for a motherboard).
They should have just looked at the Russian name for the movie "The Matrix Reloaded" - "Матрица: Перезагрузка".

This could happen ONLY in the US where there is no respect for professional translators!! Most of the US State Department's Office of the Language Services' staff does not have even an undergraduate degree in either linguists or translation studies. As long as they continue to think that anybody who speaks two languages can translate - we will continue to be an object of global ridicule.
