Thanks for your reply. I only now knew about #463253, so now I understand that
this is because a deprecated interface was removed. I agree with one comment
on that bug report, tho: the right way to do this would be filing bugs
against all relevant packages, add a tracking bug and when all apps have been
ported to the new interface, remove the deprecated interface from the kernel.
Anyway, I'm going to fill a bug against klaptopdaemon, so please do with this
bug report what you think is best (closing it, I would guess).
