I would like to solicit your opinion on #437357. I think that we
should change the nagios user's home directory to something else,
probably /var/lib/nagios or /home/nagios since the check-by-ssh plugin
is likely to put its variable data there.

A different fix would be to change the check_by_ssh plugin to pull its
.ssh/config file from somewhere in /etc/nagios2 and to put its
known_hosts file to /var/lib/nagios-plugins/check-by-ssh/known_hosts.

What do you guys think?
