Bug#751964: gnome-power-manager: Battery icon not reflecting current charge state, and no action performed when critical state reached (data loss)

Package: gnome-power-manager
Version: 3.8.2-1
Severity: important

The battery icon stays at the value it had after starting gnome, regardless of the
actual state of the battery. Furthermore (and I guess this is related) no action
is performed when a critical state of the battery is reached, even though such
an action is set in the power settings (hibernate).

This just caused data loss on my laptop when I forgot to plug it and it run out of 
battery without warning and without any action taken by the system.

I am using systemd as init-system, if it matters.

thanks, Florian
