Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kde-guidance-powermanager

I am running up-to-date Kubuntu Gutsy on my laptop. It always happens after ~20 minutes of normal operation that the kde-guidance-powermanager pops up a message saying "laptop battery removed" -- although I did nothing with my battery. Removing and re-entering the battery doesn't change the powermanager icon, it still says no battery installed.
Interestingly a 'cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0/state' shows me the correct state, so this is not an ACPI issue. Also, after restarting the powermanager applet, it shows the correct state.
