From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
Sometimes the GNOME applet for notebook battery check, send an erroneus warning
of "low battery". After that the CPU go fast in a saturation state indeed the
system resources monitored with "top" utility, show  that the load average
increase from 0,2/0,3 to 2 or 3. The only solution that I've found is the
"windows solution" : reboot the machine (sigh!)...

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
persists.

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
