In older versions of Mac OS X (either 10.3 or 10.4) you could ignore  
the return code when claiming the device, and the two processes would  
simply interleave their requests to the device. I'm not sure if this  
still works in 10.5. Communicating with ioupsd, or disabling it, would  
probably be a better solution.
