I've just received a mail from Pedro Côrte Real telling me that waiting 
before launching upsd could solve the problem.

I've tried, but no luck. newhidups was launched 2 hours ago, and I tried 
to launch upsd 15 minutes ago.

upsd output is :
emss at box:~> sudo upsd -DDDD -u root
Network UPS Tools upsd 2.0.4
Connected to UPS [mge]: newhidups-auto
Synchronizing........ giving up
Pinging UPS [mge]
Data for UPS [mge] is stale - check driver
Pinging UPS [mge]
Pinging UPS [mge]
Pinging UPS [mge]
Pinging UPS [mge]

Seems that it should be necessary to increase synchronizing time at upsd 
startup. What value would be reasonable for INITIAL_WAIT_MAX ?
