Well, after careful reading, I restated 50-udev.rules to original state
and wrote my own .rules as follows:

SUBSYSTEM=="tty" , NAME=="ttyUSB0" , SYSFS{dev}=="188:0" , PROGRAM+="/etc/udev/scripts/ipaq.sh"

since udevinfo -a -p /sys/class/tty/ttyUSB0 reports only SUBSYSTEM, NAME and SYSFS{dev}. 

I restarted udev with logging = info, and in /var/log/messages I saw that my script is in fact run, 
but previous to the creation of /dev/ttyUSB0 so the commands contained in my script are useless. So, 
how can I make my script run AFTER the creation of /dev/ttyUSB0? The creation is the last thing that udev do, 
but I have no clue how to run something after that.

Any help or ideas will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Mariano López Reta
