I've experienced this at times too. It appears to be a bug in gnome-power-manager or something at a lower level, but I can't confirm where. A workaround I came across is to reattach the external power supply and re-remove it. This gives the correct battery status. I'll see if I can find a bug report on this. If not, we should try and collect some info to submit one.
