I think I've fixed this one. Apparently kobject notification has
changed behaviour in the case where the /sys paths that frameworkd
watches are symbolic links. When the Python-level notification
callback is called, the path given is a canonical link, not the
original symbolic link path.
The change at http://gitorious.org/stuff-for-openmoko-freerunner/debian-usr-share-pyshared/commit/2833bf870b87d4892083daaf6c1c46b4237195d1
addresses this, and makes battery reporting work again for me.
Can anyone comment on whether this analysis and fix are correct?
