In my case gkrellm didn't even know there was a battery installed when I was 
using ACPI.  Since this is the only time I've used it, I've no idea if it's 
because of the kernel bug I'm working around or if the two are inherently 

Once I set acpi=off, I got good battery/power status.  Odds are it's not 
applicable at all, but I mentioned it just in case as something potentially 
worth looking in to.
