Good. You seem to be running the latest version from the trunk.

Not surprising. The order of command line options is wrong. The  
correct order would be

     upscmd -u admin rs800 test.battery.start.quick

See 'man 8 upscmd'.

Older versions of upsd and upsmon should be fine (newer than 2.0.5, if  
memory serves).
