False alarm. I'm using 2.6.3 from EPEL and it does indeed have that line.

I /think/ that the issue results from this sequence of events

1. Install nut RPM (which installs udev rules file, but doesn't run
udevadm control --reload-rules)
2. Plug in UPS
3. Notice the the permissions were wrong on /dev file
4. Manually created /etc/udev/rules.d file
5. Manually ran udevadm control --reoload-rules

What I should have done was:

1. Install nut RPM
2. udevadm control --reload-rules
3. Plug in UPS

Is it advisable for the nut %postinstall scriplet to run the udevadm
control command?
