Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: nut

After upgrading from Jaunty to Karmic, I noticed that UPS monitoring
with nut stopped working. It took me a few moments to figure it out, but
then I noticed that /etc/nut/nut.conf had a new timestamp and in it the
variable MODE was (once again) set to empty instead of "netserver" which
it was on Jaunty. Changing this back fixed the UPS monitoring, but the
package upgrade should not overwrite the configuration file.
