>From SVN r595 the problem with the startup delay of upsd and
'synchronizing.... giving up' should be fixed. Basically, this is a
cosmetic bug, since after a while upsd should be able to receive replies
from the driver anyway (regardless whether it can synchronize on the
first try or not). Within about 30 seconds the data should no longer be
stale. Note that in case of newhidups you may need to increase the value
of MAXAGE in upsd.conf from the default 15 seconds to something like 30
seconds in order to prevent the staleness warnings.
