[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#633522: xfce4-power-manager: undims brighter on inactivity when settings level is higher than current

Package: xfce4-power-manager
Version: 1.0.10-4
Severity: normal

When power-manager's setting is to dim the display on inactivity to e.g. 50%, but the display brightness is currently 
lower, e.g. 30%, then pm will actually undim brighter on inactivity and dim darker once activity returns.
This is odd behaviour.
I would rather expect the display to dim *by* another 50% instead of *to* 50%.

Have a thinkpad with acpi functions active, but does not seem to interfere.

thanks for your excellent work!
