Sounds like apmd is grabbing your input somehow.

Check for known bugs and, assuming you're up to date on its source,
submit a bug report. Knowing the source date for your apmd would be
ideal. (If you don't build from source, knowning what version and
patch level of the distro or the date of the snapshot is the same

(Keep the buggy binary around. apmd's maintainer for whatever distro
you're using will probably want a copy and maybe want to have you do
some testing based on it.)
