Package: wmbattery
Version: 2.50-1+b1
Release: Stretch

Hello Maintainers,

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad T400 with 4 GByte of memory, installed Stretch
and have 4 GByte of swap.

If I use the Laptop mobile, then anything is working fine, but if I
drive with my Sprinter, Traktor or I am at home, wmbattery goes crazy
if I put the Laptop in the docking station.

wmbattery show always 00:00 and 96% which is sometimes not true.

However, I just discovered with htop, that it is wmbattery which
used more then 3 GByte of memory and Linux started kicking other

Unfortunately I have currently no screenshot of the huge memory
consumption but I will send you with this Bugreport the current htop
screenshoot and tomorrow the second one (If my system does not
unexpected reboot which happen since Stretch a couple of times)

Thanks in avance
