I've tried with mge-shut :
emss at box:~> cat /usr/local/etc/nut/ups.conf
# Network UPS Tools: example ups.conf
       driver = mge-shut
         port = /dev/cuad0
         desc = "MGE Ellipse ASR600USBS"
         notification = 3

upsd monitors mge-shut without any glitch now.

I've had a kernel crash in usb subsystem while playing with newhidups 
yesterday evening, so usb stack could be the problem.

I'll check with FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE as soon as it becomes available. For 
the time being, I have to buy another pci/serial card...

Regards and many thanks for your help
