I'm not sure ...but then the UPS would "see" the ground and not lite up the fault indicator on the ups...
they both go to the same place in the breaker panel....

I have install a few circuit breakers...on 3wire setups and they do connect to the same buss in the panel
Ground and neutral do not go to the same place on an electrical panel, at least not a properly wired panel

I agree with that..just wondering if the GFI somehow did this internally as it was implied in the article I gave the link to
It might be acceptable in the breaker box, but I doubt that it would be acceptable elsewhere.
If the ground is really connected to the same bus bar in the breaker box,
I agree with that also... not sure what would happen...it could could be disastrous
you could connect ground to the neutral line, which would make the fault go away, but I certainly would not do this as it is wrong.

Replace the cover plate. There should also be a little sticker with the GFI that says "No Ground" or something similar. Place that on the GFI to alert people that this outlet is not grounded.
