[...]We have submitted a request to ATMEL to understand why pin 7 creates the problem.[...]
i say 'something similar to' because the requirements to enter parallel programming mode are not being fully met, yet the processor is still entering some non-normal state. i suspect ATMEL will point out that you are operating the processor outside of normal operating conditions, and advise fitting a diode between RESET and Vcc to ensure the device remains within the defined operating parameters.
