Battery indicator applet appears in two places

Bug Description

Upgraded a pretty clean Karmic system to Lucid RC yesterday, and now I'm seeing the laptop battery indicator applet twice in my panel: once in the Notification Area and once in the Indicator Applet. The former displays the "broken" icon, though clicking on it shows the same menu as the one in the latter. I will attach a screenshot.

I the screenshot, the other instance of the icon is next to the NetworkManager applet.

Removing indicator-applet-session worked for me. It says it's a clone maybe that has something to do with it.
