I read the two bug reports and it certainly seemed like the likely culprit.
However, after I installed the 2.0.3-2 packages the problem remains.  The
symptoms are unchanged from my original email.  I still get:

foxstar:~# upsd -DDD -u root
Network UPS Tools upsd 2.0.3
Can't connect to UPS [foxstarups] (newhidups-auto): No such file or directory
