[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#404941: nagios-text: HOME env passed to plugins is not set properly

Package: nagios-text
Version: 2:1.3-cvs.20050402-2.sarge.2
Severity: normal

I noticed that $HOME in plugin scripts is /root, which prevents certain
commands (e.g. those that use $HOME/somepath for storing/reading in
prefs etc) to operate. Also, doesn't it mean that the root's privileges
aren't dropped entirely?
