Subject: mate-power-manager: battery icon missing

Package: mate-power-manager
Version: 1.20.2-1~bpo9+1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

the battery icon in the tray is missing when you select to show the
battery icon in the panel, either showing always, only when battery is
available or showing when battery is charging.
The only thing you see on the panel is an exclamation mark. Therefor I
disabled the icon entireley. I can live without it but actually it is
really useful when you use a laptop with battery power.
