I'm curious if anyone can reproduce this problem on a Breezy system that has
been updated in the last day or two. As far as I can tell, there are now two
things going on in Breezy that will keep people from seeing this problem.

First, there is a problem with the current acpi-support script
/usr/share/acpi-support/power-funcs. The getXuser function will exit with an
error, and that will prevent laptop mode from starting. I worked around that bug
by replacing "gnome-session" with "x-session-man", and that allowed laptop-mode
to start when I unplugged the power.

However, even once I had laptop-mode running again. I still don't see the hangs.
This nang used to be reproducible in 10-20 minutes for me. I've tried several
session where I left the laptop running on battery power for 30 minutes or more,
and I don't see any hangs.
