[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#437357: ssh key lost

I just came across the same problem.

I rebooted the monitor server and suddenly nagios isn't able to login to
any host anymore.

Apparently it's private ssh key in it's homedir got wiped out
(/var/run/nagios2/.ssh/..., and also it's known_hosts).

The homedir really shouldn't be wiped out, and this is a big problem.

Please change the severity to grave, as this bug causes data loss. I
have to create a new key now, and put it's public key on each host again.

Is this bug fixed in lenny? I might just upgrade already then :)
