Hmm. To debug that, can you kill the running driver (in Debian/Ubuntu, it may be easiest to stop the whole nut-* service set) and manually run the driver with five "-D" flags (once with both ondelay and offdelay set, and once without), and send the stderr output from at least 60 seconds in each case? Probably will look something like this:

/lib/nut/usbhid-ups -a ups-name -DDDDD 2>&1 | tee /tmp/usbhid-ups_APC_CS650.1.log

You may want to tar and bzip2 the output (tar jcvf ...) since the log files grow quickly at that log level.

I'll be honest, I'm not sure how this works on the Back-UPS series - on my Back-UPS LS500, I just use the default timers (it wasn't powering a critical system). I need to do some testing with another UPS, so maybe after that, I can swap this one in and see what happens.
