I have been using NUT, but somewhere between 2.0.0 and 2.0.3 something got
broken -- my config files now result in the hiddev device files vanishing
when NUT tries to start up.  The only way to get them back is to reboot
the computer, and as this is a server I found the best way was to get some
.src.rpms from an older Fedora and run those.

This problem bit me when I ran FC3, and was repeated in RHEL and CentOS 4.
Which is a pity, because I'd like to use the extended attributes of my
APC UPSs which are allegedly available in the later versions of NUT.
