In particular, the version of acpid in Lenny, 1.0.8-1lenny1, is too old
and will not work properly with newer kernels (2.6.29, 2.6.30, and
probably therefore also 2.6.31-rc#).  But the backport version provided
by panthera's repository will work.  So if you are following the above
document and upgrade using that repo, you should be OK.

If you're already at a known good acpid and are still having the same
problem, please let us know.
