Hi Peter,
I got all your patches and applied them, and I wanted to say kudos for a
great job done.
This is the output of upsc that I'm getting right now.
I had the same issue when using any cvs version (from two weeks ago)
that  made my UPS go into a state where it wasn't functioning normally
(checking the kernel log shows that it cannot be connected and I had
around a page of DEVFS_USB errors and some -71 and -75 error codes) and
the only way I got it to show up again was to power the system and UPS
down and unplug it for a few seconds, but with your patches, its working

It seems the ups.status doesn't show OL here, I tried unplugging the UPS 
from the outlet and after a few seconds it shows it as OB Discharging so 
we know its updating the values, the same goes with the remaining 
capacity and runtime (they decrease when I run on UPS only).

What level of debug do you want me to run newhidups with and post back 
its output?
