The latest version of upower does not detect my laptop battery. This results in Gnome not doing suspend (still works by directly invoking pm-suspend from the console) and not displaying any information regarding the battery.

Downgrading to upower 0.9.4-1 makes everything work again.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
upower 0.9.5-1

* config and/or log files etc.
not relevant

* Hardware:
Compal IFL90 standard battery:
Vendor - COMPAL
Model - PA3465U
Voltage - 11.1 V

Steps to reproduce:
Just check if your battery is still detected after the update.
