Hi Jospin,

I'm not convinced, that raising the verbose level (making plugins output 
longer) is, what our users really want since it changes the recent behavior of 
the checks drastically. In my opinion the local administrator should define 
additional checks, if the long output is needed.

Anyways ... maybe you just add the "-v" in the end of your check command 
argument? Isn't that working?

With kind regards, Jan.
P.S. Unfortunately I don't have a LDAP server available to check all this.
