I'm aware of two files that would need to be updated:

/use/share/nagios3/htdocs/docs/monitoring-windows.html contained in 
package nagios3-doc.  This is the html file you references that is 
copied from the documentation on nagios.org.

contained in package nagios3-common.  This is the sample config file for 
check_nt that splits commands into two arguments.

There could possibly be other places that need to be changed.
