It seems something broke with the battery display. Last night it
showed 94% remaining capacity for more than 2 hours.

Afterwards I docked the machine (HP6510b) and rebooted it. Since then
more than 8 hours have passed, but it still shows 16% (the LED indicators
state that the battery is full and no longer charging).
