[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#612611: xfce4-power-manager: Does not work with DBus activated HAL

Package: xfce4-power-manager
Version: 0.8.5-2
Severity: grave
Tags: patch
Justification: renders package unusable

The new HAL version in sid doesn't start anymore at boot time; it gets
activated whenever something connects to its dbus interface.
Since xfce4-power-manager checks if HAL is running before connecting, the 
latter never gets started, making x-p-m basically useless.
I guess this problem will disappear with the new XFCE not making use of HAL,
but in the meanwhile importing the fix from ubuntu[0] would make a kind
thought for users.
