 Problem Description:
 
 A number of bugs have been fixed in this new acpid package:
 
 Correct an error in the initscript, to look for lm_battery.sh rather
 than battery.sh.
 
 Correct an issue where logrotate of acpid's log files would cause the
 X server to consume 100% cpu.
 
 Note: In order to restart the acpid service you may have to stop X
 (telinit 3 if you use a graphical login, or exit X if you use startx).
