I was looking into the bugreport. I can't find anything (beside the changelog 
entry of I can't find the answer of the mail to 
nagiosplug-devel at lists.sourceforge.net (nothing found in the ml archive), no 
traces in svn/snapshot.d.n and no hints in the changelog about removing/what 
happened with the patch.

Any thoughts/hints/what ever?

With kind regards, Jan.
