Insect bot different readings with different power supply.

I'm having a problem with the insect bot: the IR sensor seems to work
differently when powered by the battery.
When connected over USB, the sensor works as expected. When I switch
to the battery the results are different. It's hard to know exactly
how different since I can't see the serial output when not connected
over USB, but basically the results change and the range finding
doesn't seem to work the same anymore.
Do you have any ideas what might be wrong.
