Comment(by martin.langhoff):

 Got some help and managed to get debug logs from gnome-settings-daemon
 (where power-plugin drives the battery icon we care about).

 In summary, the logs show that g-s-m's internal state is consistent with
 upower and with what the kernel events see.

 Looks like the same #11860 bug that hides the icon prevents updates to the

 For reference, here's how to get good logs --

 At the end of olpc-session

   G_MESSAGES_DEBUG=power-plugin # did not work for me

   # exec $desktop
   $desktop --debug 2>~/.desktop.errlog >~/.desktop.log


 then replace g-s-d thus:


  mv /usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon{,.real}
  cat >/usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon <<EOF
  exec /usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon.real --debug
  chmod ugo+x /usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon


 Now you are ready for

 systemctl restart prefdm.service
