Salut Eric,

sorry for the late of the answer, but as told previously, I just had
my 2nd baby...

the problem seems to come, as Peter told, from the way you launch the driver.
upsd tells us that it's connected ("Connected to UPS [mge]:
newhidups-auto"), but the socket path should be something like
newhidups-<section-name> where <section-name> matchs the UPS section
in your ups.conf.

to test it right, call  in debug mode using
newhidups -DDD -a <section-name>
then relaunch upsd and send us some newhidups output.
