Hey Tuc,

Ellipse USBS units are bound to:
- newhidups when using the USB port,
- mge-shut when using the serial port.

mge-utalk is for older units, or the more recent that still come with
UTalk compatibility.

As mentionned in my previous (private) answer, the newhidups version
in nut 2.0.3 has a major bug with libusb which results in a crash.
Solved for the soon to be released 2.0.4...
