[Nut-upsuser] upsc "Error: ... Can't assign requested address"

I've just install nut 2.2 from source on my FreeBSD box. I have an MGE
AVR 600 UPS on a USB cable. Following the INSTALL instructions,
everything works in term of the USB driver detecting the right UPS and
upsd loads up and runs without error.
However, upsc reports the following error:
# upsc mge600 at localhost
Error: Connection failure:Can't assign requested address
I was having this trouble with the FBSD ports version of nut v2.0.4,
hence the source build of 2.2. Whilst other things are working much
better with 2.2 (like the upsd driver auto-driver load, which wasn't
before), this "address assignment" problem remains.
(I have no firewall activated, if that's of any relevance).
Many thanks for any help!
