Yes, I can definitely confirm it. This same behavior also exists in the
applet that lets me lock the screen, log out, etc.--not sure of its name.

Has anyone filed a bug on this? I've just been living with it, but
you're right, it is more important in Lucid and having to right-click
every time I want to check my battery status or whatnot is going to get
annoying fast.

If not, it would be great if earlier adopters filed these sorts of bugs.
I honestly didn't see the point of this applet until today, and thought
that it was a gnome-panel issue, but seeing as these two are the only
applets which behave this way, that doesn't seem to be the case, and
it's probably going to be tough or impossible to fix this so late.
