Package: nagios-nrpe-server
Version: 2.12-4
Severity: normal

It seems that the script contains an extra rm. I patched it like this :

--- /etc/init.d/nagios-nrpe-server.orig 2009-09-04 15:37:43.000000000 +0200
+++ /etc/init.d/nagios-nrpe-server      2010-12-17 19:18:30.166348873 +0100

        chown nagios "$PIDDIR"
-test -e $PIDDIR/nrpe.pid && rm $PIDDIR/nrpe.pid
+#test -e $PIDDIR/nrpe.pid && rm $PIDDIR/nrpe.pid
 set -e

The warning "Cannot remove pidfile '/var/run/nagios/nrpe.pid' - check your privileges." stopped.
The PID file is still correctly handled.
