That's entirely possible if he's using a version older than 2.0.4.
That's why I asked him which version he's using.

Maybe, but in that case I would still like to know the version, in order
to interpret the output in the right way. We've applied some bugfixes in
this aspect, especially in the code that decides whether a UPS is stale
or not.

If sstate_dead() is the problem, I'm almost certain that Markus is using
something older than 2.0.4. In that case he'd better update to something
