"Battery may be broken" alert appears after updating to DeviceKit-power-007-2.fc11.x86_64

Description of problem:
After upgrading to DeviceKit-power-007-2.fc11.x86_64, each time I login I get an alert telling me that my battery is broken ("low capacity (69%) ...").
System is (one-two months old) Thinkpad X200.
I see no messages in /var/log/messages, nor in ~/.xsession-errors.
If I manually start gnome-power-manager, I get the same alert. Running g-p-m with "--no-daemon --verbose --debug" produces no output:
[tbl@tlondon ~]$ gnome-power-manager --no-daemon --verbose --debug
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Alert with "69% warning"
Screen shot of alert.....
Forgot version of g-p-m:
Also forgot to mention: reverting to DeviceKit-power-006-3.fc11.x86_64 "makes it work again".
With DeviceKit-power-006-3.fc11.x86_64 (and a reboot), the applet returns to the panel, and I no longer get the "69% alerts".

Output of devkit -s power_supply & devkit-power -d
It is also happening here. It seems that the proper data is exported from kernel, through hal up to DeviceKit, but for some reason, DeviceKit-power misses it. Output of both devkit -s power_supply & devkit-power -d is attached.

Version 008-0.1.20090401git.fc11 works. All properties are correctly available. I think that ticket can be closed.
Yeah... "works for me".
