sorry for the delay getting back to you, i've been on vacation and
it doesn't look like anyone else is picking up the slack :/

sounds like something's fishing with the init script... i'll try and
take a look into it a bit later.  the entire script is a little clunky,

btw: you can purge an already removed package with 'dpkg -P'.

is this also on your other production system?  could you send me
the following in that case?

- ps -ef | grep nagios
- sh -x /etc/init.d/nagios stop
