[Nut-upsuser] SUSE 10.0 and MGE Ellipse

Greetings Arnaud and others,
 I've been using NUT with Gentoo Linux for a couple of years now. I recently installed SUSE Linux 10.0 and I'm having difficulty getting it to recognize my UPS (MGE Ellipse).
 I tried the MGE-PSP package, but the GUI crashes immediately on startup. I decided to get just NUT running correctly before worrying about that. I uninstalled MGE-PSP and am left wtih the NUT 2.0.2-4 package from MGE.
 This thread from June/July 2005 shed some light on the problem:
 For me, hotplug is not calling the libhidups script to the correct permissions on the USB device. If I fix it manually (e.g. by running "ACTION=add DEVICE=/proc/bus/usb/002/002 TYPE=usb /etc/hotplug/usb/libhidups"), NUT works fine. However, the permissions are reset on reboot. Same if I unplug and reconnect the USB cable, a new device is created with the wrong permissions (root:root/0644).
 I suppose I could write myself an init script to fix the permissions before NUT starts, but I'd rather just get hotplug to do what is expected of it. Any ideas?
