[Nut-upsdev] ups.delay.shutdown clarification

A client of mine has an APC Back-UPS 350 model (USB connected). His  
office had a power incident yesterday, where there was an interruption  
of about 30 seconds. During that time, the server shut down. As soon  
as it went on battery, the daemon initiated a shutdown. In checking it  
today, I see the ups.delay.shutdown setting is -1. I tried to adjust  
it, but could not do so.

What does the "-1" setting mean? I Googled, but couldn't find anything  
relevant. Am I correct in assuming it is this setting that caused the  
immediate shutdown? Today, the UPS shows a load of 35, via the upsc  
command, so it doesn't appear it was overloaded.
