Hello again,

I think I've been unclear in what I did, though the problem should be clear.

I've installed nagios-test, configured it, then removed it and left it
in that state for some weeks. Today I received notifications from both
that old installation and another recent and productive installation on
another host. That was quite confusing to me. The zombie nagios was
started on Jul 30, that is round about the date, when I removed the
package. Then I did a new install in order to invoke a --purge which
didn't change the situation.

Well, now I've inspected the package maintenance scripts
(/var/lib/dpkg/info/nagios-common.prerm) and it looks perfectly ok. It
seems to me that /etc/init.d/nagios doesn't work properly, but I don't
understand why. However, on my system /etc/init.d/nagios stop doesn't do
