[Bug 64969] kde-guidance-powermanager applet leaks memory rapidly

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kde-guidance-powermanager

A31p laptop, ACPI mode, current -generic kernel, up to date Edgy.

I have:
daniel at enki:~$ dpkg -s kde-guidance-powermanager
Package: kde-guidance-powermanager
Status: install ok installed
Architecture: i386
Version: 0.6.7svn20060919-0ubuntu1

I also have an applet that is now showing:
12967 daniel    15   0  112m  87m  20m S  0.3  8.7   3:05.59 guidance-power-

This is after two days; last time it had a total memory allocation of
around 500MB acquired in around 10 days; timings are fuzzy because I
don't completely trust my memory of exactly when I last restarted my
desktop, and I wasn't paying attention until the bad end of that run. :)

In this recent period I have not, I believe, interacted with the applet
at all -- not even to display the tooltop or anything.  I have not
changed power state (AC full time) and have marginally altered screen
brightness twice using the built-in hot keys.

I am happy to deliver a core, or to debug the code, or whatever if that
will help.
