OK, that did not work:-( Neither the `hub-ctrl power off->on' nor the
unbind->bind of the hub did reset the USB connection enough that the OS
would see the UPS again:-(
Stuart, did you find an USB hub which can actually switch the power?
Otherwise, I'll probably go down the road of creating an Arduino-based
power-switch at least as test setup.
