Battery Monitor not updating

My Battery Monitor applet in my panel only seems to poll the battery
every 60 minutes or so, or whenever I plug in the power, or unplug the
My system usually lasts about 2 hrs on battery power. Here's an
example of what I see:
- When I unplug the system, it says 100%
- The next time it refreshes, it says about 77%
- The next time it refreshes, it says about 22%
- The next time it re... No actually it just turns off.
I would like a preference in the battery monitor applet to let me
decide how often to poll the battery. I would set mine at 5 or 10
In the meantime, is there a config file where I can set this manually?

What version of Fedora and gnome-applets is this?
Let me know if you need any more info?
- Fedora Core 3
Running on HP Pavilion zd7000. Is there a command line utility that I
can run to see the battery status?
Are the contents of /proc/acpi/battery/*/state updating regularily as
(bug #136948 may be the same problem)
Reporter in bug #136948 reports that the /proc state isn't updating
and also has a HP Pavilion zd7000.
