Maybe the problem is not with the Reset pull-up, but with Vcc ramping up
too slow. 10uF is not extremely large, but if power leads are long the
LC combination may make Vcc ramp up too slow when you apply power. I've
had problems with this when tinkering around and using long, skinny clip
leads to connect power. Also perhaps not enough capacitance on external
osc to start reliably.
