I have the same issue with Raspberry Pi (running 'raspbian') and
Powerware 5110, and I'd like to help to solve it, as I don't have the
priviledge to replace UPS :-). I'm moving my nut server from an old
NSLU2 with debian squeeze (where it was working properly) to RPi as I
need a miniserver with more memory to run also other tasks.

So, is there any debug information that I can provide to help ?
