Package: nagios-plugins
Version: 1.4.12-1
Severity: serious
Justification: http://release.debian.org/lenny/rc_policy.txt, 3. Configuration Files

During upgrade, nagios-plugins has replaced all config files in
/etc/nagios-plugins/config with that files provided in the dist package.
The upgrade sequence did not asked me to keep my local changes which I
made to these files.

So maybe they are not treated as config files? Upgrade was done with
"aptitude safe-upgrade".
