I replaced panel's wrapper binary with script that executes strace -fe 
open on the real wrapper binary, and then added the plugin to the panel. 
I'm afraid not much additional info in the trace file. Unless I missed 
something, it looks like the plugin never attempts to open any image 
file. At least you can see what icon themes I have installed (adwaita, 
gnome, hicolor).


This issue looks specific to the fact that I have UPS connected on this 
particular computer, not battery. I see that xfce4-power-manager-data 
package has specific icons for UPS' and they're properly installed, 
somehow they are invisible in panel. :P
