[arch-general] sleep + lid events + kde => new problem

Using fully updated testing repo - starting 'recently' - I notice that
lid close no longer sleeps my laptop.
Kde power is configured to sleep on lid close. If i click the menu and
choose sleep manually - it sleeps fine - and subsequently wakes fine on
I can confirm with this little shell loop (left running and then close
lid and reopen) that acpi shows lid is indeed closed:
while [[ 1 == 1 ]]
> cat /proc/acpi/button/lid/*/state
> sleep 1
So, it -seems- as if lid-event is not being passed along for some
reason to the (kde) power management - or not being listened to.
I have not yet switched to systemd - and I'm not sure which process is
responsible for such events.
It still happens with 3.5.4 kernel if that makes any difference.
It is a W520 lenovo laptop.
Anyone else notice similar - or can offer suggestions?
