Subject: xfce4-power-manager icon isn't updating

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]

Package: xfce4-power-manager

Version: 1.4.1

The power manager icon isn't updating to reflect the correct battery level, although ACPI reports it just fine.  Suspend/reboot can update it to where it it at upon wake/login, but it fixes on just that percentage, and doesn't further update.  Some research suggests the xfce4-power-manager versions yield the issue; others point to upower.  Some Debian/Crunchbang threads suggest that downgrading to stable versions of upower fixes the solution, but I noticed Devuan only has one.

Also, this is an issue that has persisted since last year, when I tried Devuan on another system and it yielded the same issue:
