I'm back again on this issue.
I have contacted Red Hat support but they won't do anything to help since it
is not an official Red Hat package. Unless I prove the conflict come from
So I am trying to figure out what is going on.
Adding -DDDDD will not add any more log at the services stop.
When I look at the sources, I couldn't find the piece of code that release
properly the usb UPS device. There is just a normal SIGTERM handling. Is
I also noticed that there are debug logs but I don't know how to activate
them... Can somebody tell me how to do it?
Do you have any advice on how to debug this? I have not seen anything
particuliar about IRQs and there is no message in syslog when stopping ups.
The fact is that I don't know at all what is blocking my network card and
even less why... :(

This sounds like a bug in the tg3 driver in that kernel version. Have you
checked the RedHat bugzilla to see if anyone else sees this?
Depending on how the motherboard is laid out, moving the UPS to a different
USB port might avoid this problem. It could have something to do with
interrupt handling (for example, the tg3 driver expects an interrupt that is
stolen by the USB controller).
