[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#467493: check_smtp only says "Invalid SMTP response received from host"

Package: nagios-plugins-basic
Version: 1.4.5-1etch1


check_smtp.c around line 239 says:

if (!strstr (buffer, server_expect)) {
	if (server_port == SMTP_PORT)
		printf (_("Invalid SMTP response received from host\n"));

In such a case, it makes sense to actually *print* what the server said
(different from SMTP_EXPECT, "220"), because this error message is pretty
much useless for later debugging. Including the 'buffer' variable in
that output seems like a no-brainer.

Please fix this. TIA.

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
