Found !

It was my bad, you can safely close this bug.

In fact I had modified check_nagios_db to output these variables (I 
removed the commented 'print') when I was setting it up, in case 
something would went wrong, and I didn't realize that what I saw 
was the first line of the output of this command.

Once I had re-commented out the 'print' line, all was OK.

Sorry for this guys, and thanks for your help.
