`powstatd -t` (test mode) should _not_ shut down the computer
even if it thinks power is low.  I gather you are sure it's not
running in plain daemon mode?

There's only 8 days or so before the freeze, so if the package
has a bug I'd like to fix it now.

Is the UPS fully charged?  Setting-up the /etc/powstatd.conf will
be tricky if you can't get ever the OK signal (instead of LOW).

What is the ouput of `powstatd -t` ?
Have you tried new /etc/powstatd.conf settings?
