I stand corrected, I looked at a different location where an identical  
(!) message is logged. Gotta change that one, because that's downright  
confusing. A fixed version is now available in the SVN trunk, that  
will correct this.

Nowhere. You're absolutely right.

Well, we do use rate limiting here (and will log only once every 100  
errors after the initial 10), but with the given amount of queries  
(and failing), I agree this will still be quite often.

Unless what I expected, we do keep querying these non-existent OID's,  
so the better solution would be to check on startup if they are  
supported by the UPS (like we do for the usbhid-ups in a similar  
fashion). I'm sorry for misleading you here.
