[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#491617: nagios3: wrong path to temp_file in nagios.cfg

Package: nagios3
Version: 3.0.3-1
Severity: normal

temp_file=/var/cache/nagios3/nagios.tmp in nagios.cfg makes nagios fail
since nagios cannot write to /var/cache. Fixing the path to
/var/cache/nagios3/nagios.tmp helps.

As a corollary, the error message "Error: Unable to create temp file
for writing status data!" could be more helpful, for example by
actually naming the file that nagios intends to write.
