Should be fixed in the last commit, please try it and report back.

Please note that you need polkit policy authorization for your user 
name, usually it is in /var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d

and could a filed called org.freedesktop.upower.pkla with content

[Local Users]

In the Action you can use something like
Action=* to get have all the polkit authorizations on your system
