when starting my window manager (afterstep), wmacpi is successfully started
and displays the correct battery status (running docked into the afterstep
However, the GUI is not animated. I mean, the text that normally scrolls
through is not displayed, and the battery status remains the same.
If I hide the wharf and then unhide it, the updated status is displayed in
wmaci. If I do that often enough, I sometimes see a frozen part of the
scroll-message (e.g. "battery charging").
When I click on the GUI to display the status of the second battery, nothing

The same happens if I us the Gnome desktop environment and I start wmacpi
from a terminal. In that case, I just need to hide the GUI (e.g. by sliding
another window over it) and the GUI display will "refresh".

Thanks a lot.
