Package: xfce4-battery-plugin
Version: 1.1.0-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

After upgrading from Jessie to Stretch I noticed that CPU load on my X220 is
sometimes nonzero despite I'm not doing anything. The culprit turned out to be
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/xfce4/panel/wrapper-2.0 operating plugins/libbattery.so.
I'm not sure, but it looks like the plugin starts consuming exceccive CPU after
I go from AC power to battery power. Terminating the process leads to automatic
restart and the new process stays idle enough (<1%).

Normally I wouldn't bother, but the fact that CPU load increases when I switch to
battery made me report it.
