This bug no longer affects my system, and appears to be resolved.

When I press the power button, the action assigned to it in
xfce4-power-manager settings is performed (such as displaying the "Ask"
dialog, or shutting down). I no longer need to use Xfce's Keyboard
Application Shortcuts for it.

There appear [on login] to be two instances running (transcript):
$ ps -ef | grep power
root      2328     1  0 09:34 ?        00:00:00 /usr/lib/upower/upowerd
art4      3194     1  0 09:36 ?        00:00:00 xfce4-power-manager
--restart --sm-client-id 2376d3356-576a-4c22-9dd4-e604fe278f7b
art4      3210     1  0 09:36 ?        00:00:00 xfce4-power-manager
art4      3576  3530  0 09:45 pts/0    00:00:00 grep power
But only one system-tray icon appears. When the xfpm instances are
killed, upowerd will shut down the system if the power button is pressed.

evtest is still reporting two power buttons, but as xfce4-power-manager
is working correctly with them I'm less inclined to investigate. [It's
actually been working correctly for a month or so now -- sorry for not
reporting sooner.]
