Package: nagios2
Version: 2.6-2+etch1
Severity: normal

the reload() function in /etc/init.d/nagios2 executes
	killproc -p $THEPIDFILE $DAEMON 1
which calls
and this command removes the nagios.pid file

This file is needed to reload or stop nagios...

A quick solution is to recreate $THEPIDFILE after killproc is executed
    if check_started; then
      pid="$(cat $THEPIDFILE)"
      killproc -p $THEPIDFILE $DAEMON 1
      # recreate $THEPIDFILE
      echo $pid > $THEPIDFILE
