I also see this on some other laptop when controlling the brightness  
of the LCD backlight.

When running mate-power-manager from the cmdline, I see this message  
once when I press one of the Fn + <brighter>/<darker> keys.

(mate-power-manager:3103): GLib-CRITICAL **: Source ID 11 was not  
found when attempting to remove it

@Stefano: any input on this from your upstream side? I remember that  
this issue was not present when my notebook was still running wheezy  
(with mate-power-manager from wheezy-backports).
