Package: xfce4-power-manager
Version: 1.2.0-2
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

When my system is booted up and the XFCE4 wm is loaded I have a system tray
icon (its a battery with a power cord currently) for the XFCE4 power manager.
Next to this icon is another icon which currently shows a white box with a red
cross inside. This seems to indicate that the actual icon is missing and this
is a replacement.
I do not know exactly what kind of icon is expected there, however when right-
clicking on the icon I do get a context menu with all the options from the
xfce4-power-manager (and clicking the 'About' menu item confirms this). Hence I
suspect that it is related to this package.

I do not remember doing any customizations to the power manager, at least not
to the icons in the system tray, so I suspect this to be the case by default.

Everything else seems to be in fine conditions so I do not expect any more
troubles except for the missing icon.

Expected result: I would like to see the original icon there :-)

Thanks you!

PS: If this is related to theming (and selecting the correct theme) may it be
possible to have a default back-up icon that can be used in case none is
