[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#722498: xfce4-power-manager: intermittently reporting 0% charge even when acpi says 100%

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

This is somewhat bizarre.  I don't know where xfce4-power-manager gets
its information from, but for the last couple of days I've noticed
that it is sometimes reporting things like "Adapter is online Your
battery is charging (0%)", even if I've only momentarily removed the
AC power supply.  But acpi says:

polya:~ $ acpi -i -b
Battery 0: Charging, 100%,  until charged
Battery 0: design capacity 6600 mAh, last full capacity 5792 mAh = 87%

I'm uncertain why it doesn't specify a time until charged, but it
clearly says that it's 100% full, not 0%.

Othertimes, though, xfce4-power-manager says 100% or another sensible

I have no idea what is causing this, or where the possible bug lies.
