I posted the 'old' and 'new' lines. You might have missed this on the  
first look, buy after I told you the difference, you could have looked  
again at the original post.

Not at all. As I already indicated a couple of times, APC uses a  
myriad of methods to shutdown their UPSes. Have a look at the USB  
apcupsd code and you'll appreciate how broken the APC software is. So  
bluntly accepting your changes might have fixed you problems, but  
would at the same time break it again for others. This is the problem  
we're in (which you don't seem to understand).
