A bugfix release is now out for GNOME Power Manager v2.14. This version, which was just released hours ago, adds the missing --daemon option to the man page, doesn't do the critical action when the battery value is at 0%, deal sanely with HAL and DBUS restarting, the experimental code has been removed and moved to HEAD, use the button "battery" rather than the "www" to show battery status, don't inhibit just throttle when lid is shut, add X-GNOME-Bugzilla keys for use with bug buddy. This bugfix update is available from GNOME.
