The cheeky answer is that upsmon never dies unexpectedly. (To be fair, the code is a lot simpler than the drivers, or upsd.) But nut-client 2.7.4-5 has a PIDFile directive, so we should have the bases covered.

As I recall, the patches to tell upsmon not to fork (which would avoid that message) made a mess of the options, or were not consistent with other NUT daemons.
