Reasoning more on the problem I've come to the same conclusion, also because
if I power on the laptop with the battery and then remove it the state is
properly detected, and, before the last version of hal, with 2.6.24 kernel
only one battery was detected (obviously as not present) when powering on
with battery disconnected (and that was probably the procfs one).
Now I'm just wondering if there are plans to develop a workaround in hal (
e.g. cheching both sysfs and procfs interfaces but displaying only one)
until the kernel bug is resolved.
2 is not equal to 3 -- not even for large values of 2.
