Package: nagios-plugins-basic
Version: 1.4.3-1
Severity: normal

According to the -h (help) output of the command, the following is
advertised as example of how to use check_disk:
joostje at muso:/$ /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_disk -h|grep 10%
 check_disk -w 10% -c 5% -p /tmp -p /var -C -w 100000 -c 50000 -p /
    Checks /tmp and /var at 10% and 5%, and / at 100MB and 50MB

But running it (well, only the first part of the arguments), gives
the following error on my AMD64 system:

joostje at muso:/$ /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_disk -w 10% -c 5% -p /tmp
INPUT ERROR: C_IDFP (0.000000) should be less than W_IDFP (0.0) and both should be between zero and 100 percent, inclusive for /tmp
check_disk: Could not parse arguments
Usage: check_disk -w limit -c limit [-p path | -x device] [-t timeout][-m] [-e] [-W limit] [-K limit] [-v] [-q]

This was still working OK with nagios-plugins-basic 1.4.2-7.
