That is no longer the latest version, I just committed r2389 and r2390  
based on the information you provided.

I attempted to fix this, by setting "ups.delay.shutdown=10" and  
"ups.delay.reboot=120" when the driver starts monitoring the UPS (in  
order to have some sensible defaults). If you restart the driver with  
the -k flag (in order to send the shutdown command), this part of the  
code will be skipped and the driver will proceed to send the  
"shutdown.return" instcmd (twice actually, with a one second delay in  
between) with any "ups.delay.shutdown" that may have been set in the  
mean time. I agree that it isn't pretty to allow people to set a  
shutdown delay and then when the time comes to shutdown, completely  
ignore whatever they requested.

I fail to see the benefit of that. The filesystems should have been  
(re)mounted read-only and we probably don't have network connectivity  
anymore at that time, so unless someone is watching the console at  
that time, the messages will be lost forever. The reason why we have  
them here, is for debugging purposes.

Having said that, thanks for your feedback. It's been quite a while  
since we've seen someone running this driver and it is good to know  
that it still serves a purpose to maintain it. If you have the time to  
checkout the latest version from the trunk, I would be grateful.

Best regards, Arjen
