[Bug 703592] openSUSE:11.4/apcupsd: Bug "/etc/init.d/apcupsd powerdown" doesn't work due to path/test issue

--- Comment #26 from Stanislav Brabec <sbrabec@xxxxxxxxxx> 2011-08-02 18:51:51

And here is an elaborate for the update text:

WARNING: Be prepared that your UPS will significantly change its behavior on
emergency shutdown!

Users that have SLE10 and /usr on a separate partition and all users of apcupsd
on SLE11 and openSUSE were affected by this bug. Now it will be fixed and
apcupsd will cycle power on your UPS.

It has following consequences:

- If your BIOS is configured to power-on after power outage, your system will
be consistently after power return.

- If the power returns before the battery goes totally depleted, never turn
your machine on manually before passing the UPS grace period!!! Wait for the
UPS power cycle. If you don't like the grace period duration, configure your
UPS to use a better value. (See /etc/apcupsd/apcupsd.conf for more, use
apctest.) If you ignore this warning, your UPS may turn power off in the middle
of booting process!

Typo fix for the previous comment: grant period => grace period
