Not in the same way. I'm not really interested in what NUT thinks  
about this value, it is where it is stored. Previously, this value  
would be a driver side variable (without the UPS ever knowing we  
changed it) while in this case, it is a value stored (and modified) in  
the UPS. I was hoping that the UPS would consider this value for the  
minimum shutdown delay, but apparently it doesn't. Chances are it is  
something completely different... :-(

That's even weirder...

Sorry about that, the report descriptor is only reported at debug  
level 3 (or higher). So I need the output of the below command instead:

    /path/to/usbhid-ups -DDD -a apc1500 > APC_Smart-UPS_1000.log 2>&1
