  Laptop Battery Time Remaining Outrageously  Inaccurate

Bug description:
  Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn

  Hardware is HP Pavilion DV1000 series (specific DV1588EA)

  Battery monitor when running on battery reports percentage of battery
  remaining correctly, but the corresponding remaining time is often
  fabulously wrong (and can swing between e.g a few minutes to tens of
  hours in the blink of an eye). /* What I wouldn't give for batteries
  that can last 14 hours between charges... */

  It looks for all the world like the underlying values are being held
  in storage classes which are too small or where value-wrapping is not
  being handled quite right...

  BTW UBUNTU is fantastic; I'm a convert! Keep up the good work!
