as a side note, debug timestamping is now available:
ie: mge-shut -DDDT -a ...

Network UPS Tools - MGE UPS SYSTEMS/SHUT driver 0.68 (2.4.1-1840:1845M)
14:27:25: debug level is '3'
14:27:25: entering upsdrv_initups()
14:27:25: entering setline(1)
14:27:25: entering shut_ups_start()

This is effective for upsd, upsmon, upsdrvctl and the drivers by using "-T".
The best, as told in the manpages, is to use it in conjunction with the
debug flags (ie -D...)
This should help out in troubleshooting timeframe problems.
