He fixed the reconnect if you was already connected. I saw the patch, but not
the difference to my posted patch for the first connect to acpid. So now this
patch to fix also the first connect.

Not sure, but if you lost the connection to proc this is maybe a bug in the
code of the addon or the kernel. IMO you never should lost the connection to
proc. If you take a look at my posted patch  you can the patch fixed also
this problem. I can take a look on the current source and implement this also
