[Nut-upsuser] Hint for upgrade from 2.0.3 to 2.0.5

After updating from NUT 2.0.3 to 2.0.5 I got this error from upsd
during startup:

Can't connect to UPS [myups] (myups): No such file or directory

The problem was that newhidups created a pipe on
/var/run/nut/newhidups-auto while upsd was looking for

The solution to the problem was to add the option "-a myups" to the
newhidups command line in the init script. This option was not
necessary with version 2.0.3

It seems that the default values for the name of the pipe is different
in newhidups and in upsd.
