I can confirm the bug, strace shows just

4361  stat("/var/lib/nagios3/rw/nagios.cmd", 0x7fff2ee45bb0) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)
4361  open("/var/run/nagios/nsca.dump", O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_APPEND, 0666) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)

I can confirm that removing --chuid nobody from /etc/init.d/nsca
indeed makes passive checks work.

Is there any way to have send_nsca fail in the future in cases like
this? Now it just happily reported "1 data packet(s) sent to host
successfully." when nsca was discarding the report...
