what complained, exactly?  note that nagios-mysql does not depend
on mysql-server intentionally, as there are cases where the local
administrator may decide to use a remote database.

i'm changing the severity, because it's perfectly able to do so, but in
some cases it may require manual intervention before it can operate.
yes some applications still require this :)

so in closing, i'll happily add mysql-server stuff to the recommends:
line for the package (and thepackage description), though this won't
prevent your problem from re-occurring.

it seems you may have also encountered some kind of bug in the
config file generation, but i'm not sure if that's the case or
ifit's only an after-effect of the previous problem.  in any
case if you do believethere's a seperate bug about this problem,
please provideme with a littlem ore information about it and
how i can reproduce it, otherwise i'll close the bug when i
upload the package with the changes i've mentioned above.
