I started looking into this a bit more. There are a few debug statements we could add to the upsd source code, but to be honest, my personal preference is to use a kernel-level firewall and/or bind to the localhost interface, rather than use tcp_wrappers and hosts.allow.
By default, upsd will listen to localhost:3943 (unless you add additional LISTEN statements to upsd.conf, or compile in a different listening address). So commenting out the "upsd:..." line in /etc/hosts.allow should work.
If your upsd.conf had extra LISTEN statements, you will need to completely restart upsd (the "upsd -c reload" only works for basic configuration changes).
