spurious event not ignored on AC attach

Bug #213108 reported by Chris Jones on 2008-04-06
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-power-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

If my laptop is on battery and has the screen locked, plugging in the AC brings up the screensaver password request.
is this an intentional feature? It seems like it may be something interpreting the ACPI event as input.

I see this too, and I agree it probably shouldn't happen.

Re-opening because this is trivially reproducible in the Maverick release.
To rage at the darkness somewhat - please don't make lots of work for people by closing bugs that are trivially testable.
