Package: nagios-mysql
Version: 2:1.3-0+pre6

Since upgrading nagios-mysql a couple of weeks ago nagios runs
and sends email notices, but clicking for a Tactical Overview
presents the error "could not read host and service status

To resolve this, I verified everything, and there were no
errors in the config files.  MySQL was running and the tables
were being updated.  So I uninstalled everything and started
from scratch.

Now everything is configured correctly, and all the services
are running correctly, yet I still get the error message.
I ran /etc/nagios/check_nagios_db from a shell prompt just
to see the output.  It said: Nagios problem: no process
identifier found in the database.  That error comes from the
test "if (!$status{nagios_pid})".
