Hello everyone,

This bug also applies to Debian/wheezy-backports version,
but only if compositing window manager was not enabled.

The bug is now fixed upstream, see upstream bug report for details.
Upstream bug: <https://github.com/mate-desktop/mate-power-manager/issues/110>

Attached file is the upstream patch, originally tested against
1.8.0+dfsg1-2~bpo70+1 (Debian/wheezy-backports).
Patch URL: <https://gist.github.com/nachanon/2c3f43a30bdab1786fd3>

As the patch was merged verbatim on the upstream master
and Fedora MATE maintainer confirmed that it works with git checkout,
it should work on Debian/testing and Debian/unstable version too.

P.S. Current users can use this patch to fix the already-installed
mate-power-manager without rebuilding the package as well.

# cd /usr/share/mate-power-manager
# patch -p2 < /path/to/1003_fix-backlight-popup-gtkbuilder.patch

(Replace "/path/to/" with an actual folder that the patch resides in)
And logout then re-login to see the result.

This is method also tested against installed 1.8.0+dfsg1-2~bpo70+1
(Debian/wheezy-backports) too.
