The patch is entirely untested; if the applet doesn't work, would you be able to
test it with the patch? (If you like I can build a gnome-panel package for
you.) Or are there deeper issues which the patch doesn't resolve?

I'm not so familiar with apmd, or pmud, except I know the former may be
necessary for the GNOME applet to work. All I know is that the applet gave a
"comparison always false due to limited range of data type" compiler warning,
which the patch eliminates. Sorry. :-)
