Thanks for the idea to add additional items to the notifyflag. That 
proved the monitor was indeed working as expected and led me to find 
that my script had myriad issues when run under the nut user. All 
remedied now.

As I progress, I may well end up migrating to the upssched. As a newbie 
I was simply following the documented "simple" way described here 

Thanks to all!
