Package: xfce4-power-manager
Version: 1.2.0-1
Severity: important


My xfce4-power-manager segfaults each time I plug/unplug the power cord. I tried
to get some debug info using gdb:

$ gdb
(gdb) file /usr/bin/xfce4-power-manager
Reading symbols from /usr/bin/xfce4-power-manager...(no debugging symbols found)...done.
(gdb) set args --no-daemon
(gdb) run

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x00007ffff4ea5aba in vfprintf () from /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6

All messages prior to the SIGSEGV line appear as the xfce4-power-manager starts up.
The SIGSEGV appears just as I plug/unplug the cord.

I'm using XFCE 4.10 packages from experimental, so perhaps that might have
something to do with it.

Best regards
