I jumped the gun.  Mine did not reset so easily.  So you are better 
off than me.  The SMART1500LCDT actually disappears from the USB bus!
You can trigger a reset script with upssched.  You could actually use
my solution, although it is overkill.  By cycling port power, you
simulate unplugging, and replugging the USB connector.
