I'd have to check the code, but I'm fairly certain that writing a variable invalidates at least part of the HID cache in the driver.

However, it is possible that something in the driver initialization is resetting that variable. Are there any extra settings in ups.conf? Can you please send a driver log with -DDDD, gzipped and attached (so as not to wrap the lines)? Same length of time as before is good.
