This is a different message from what you reported before. These where  
logged with 'nut_snmp_get' in them and these lines should now be gone  
(unless running in debug mode 2 or higher).

Indeed, but this is in the lines you posted.

It looks like this is a different problem than what you mentioned  
before. Please be specific.

We already do rate limiting for repeating errors. After startup, these  
really shouldn't appear, which means there is probably something wrong  
(and we want to know about that).

No, previous versions didn't use tcp-wrappers. That's why I pointed  
you to 'man 8 upsd.conf' which has a paragraph ACCESS CONTROL that  
tells you that we use tcp-wrappers. It's true that we only do a lookup  
for the IP, not the hostname. Although it is common to include both  
hostname and IP in hosts.allow, we probably should make a note to that
