Bug#469543: power-manager: Applet power history reports only 50% of actual power usage

Package: gnome-power-manager
Version: 2.20.2-3
Severity: normal
File: power-manager

the power-manager applet has a power history graph.
It reports power usage values that appear to be 50% of what
powertop reports. 
So if powertop says I am using 10W, the graph shows 5W.
