On the basis of continuing experience, one final piece of R3000XR 
battery pack advice:

After swapping the R3000XR battery pack, power-cycle the UPS, wait until 
the battery pack is at least 50% charged, then disconnect the UPS from 
wall power for a minute or so before plugging it back in.  Until I did 
this, my UPS would charge the battery pack fully, then let it slowly 
self-discharge.  After FORCING it to switch to the new battery pack for 
a minute or so, it now appears to be properly maintaining tha batteries 
at full charge.

Surely it can't have been *intended* to work this way....
