There is bug inside the check_procs (c-code module). You cannot
run check with big X (you know X11). This came out from thin client
testings in LTSP, where check fails, while checking:

/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_procs -w 1:1 -c 1:2 -C X

check eats parameter big X somehow strange, giving always 0 procs.
