[Nut-upsuser] upsd.pid

I haven't been able to use my ups since upgrading to Fedora 7. The
problem seems to be that when upsd is started, it doesn't create a pid
file and produces the error message

  fopen /var/run/nut/upsd.pid: No such file or directory

But I have

  # ls -ld /var/run/nut
  8 drwxrwx--- 2 nut nut 4096 2007-08-16 16:26 /var/run/nut/

The call to upsd is

  /usr/sbin/upsd -DD -u nut -c reload

The driver start-up seems normal:

  # upsdrvctl start
  Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.0.5
  Network UPS Tools - Generic UPS driver 1.32 (2.0.5)
  UPS type: Powerware 3115

I haven't found any guidance in any of the documentation I've looked at.
