Bug#465457: /usr/lib/gnome-applets/battstat-applet-2: battstat-applet battery low warning does not go away when battery replaced

Package: gnome-applets
Version: 2.14.3-4
Severity: normal
File: /usr/lib/gnome-applets/battstat-applet-2

When my laptop battery gets low, the battstat-applet displays a warning
dialog according to its configuration.  When AC power is connected, this
dialog is automatically dismissed; however, when the depleted battery is
replaced with a fresh one (e.g. by initiating a TuxOnIce suspend cycle,
replacing the battery, and resuming from TuxOnIce), the battstat-applet
warning dialog remains on the screen.  The warning text predicts battery
failure more than an hour in the future and a charge level of 100%.

The battstat-applet warning dialog should disappear automatically if the
battery capacity or remaining charge increase to the extent that the
conditions for displaying the warning dialog are no longer true.
