Low battery notification is badly worded when remaining time is unknown

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

When my battery hit 10% remaining, I received a notification reading "Approximately Unknown time remaining".

This is pretty clumsy, and is approximately stupid sounding.

The real question is why g-p-m doesn't even estimate the time remaining on these machines, like my Dell Mini 9.
