If I recall what Bryan wrote in its first mail :
"I am starting upsd, upsmon, etc in my FreeBSD's /etc/rc.local, because
it's easy. BUT... rc.shutdown seems kill off all those processes prior
to excuting my upsdrvctl shutdown command, thereby preventing any ups
communications and yup, the power don't get killed."

This is the behavior I saw after installing, configuring, starting NUT and 
simulating a lowbatt alarm on a RHES4.5.

Meaby the cause are not the same, but the what happens ( UPS is not shut 
down ) is the same.
