OK, here you go. The following occurs several times in this log:

     Got disconnected by another driver: Device or resource busy

This means you've been running multiple instances of usbhid-ups in  
parallel, which I explicitly told you not to do. You can expect this  
kind of a mess then, which makes the remainder of the log useless.

True, and this is already fixed in the development version and will  
only log an informational message, nothing more, nothing less. It's  
this kinds of comments that bothers me the most in your replies and  
which makes it harder and harder for me to start reading yet another  
reply from you.

The rebuild the SRPMS for a newer version. For someone with so much  
experience, I would have expected that you'd be able to know that this  
is usually the easiest way to get a newer version of some package  
supported in an older distro. At the very least, it might give you a  
head start for finding out which configure flags are needed in Fedora  
10 since they will be listed in the .spec file.
