I think this is what needs to be solved. If the driver would just  
reconnect to the UPS whenever the connection is lost (either by  
fork'ing to the background or because the USB plug was replugged),  
you'd probably not have noticed anything in the first place. Any USB  
driver that not automatically reconnects is to be considered broken  
(temporary loss of connection is all too common with USB).
