Package: nagios-plugins-basic
Version: 1.4.12-5
Severity: normal

The output of check_apt with the -v option is at the moment the following:

# /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_apt -v
Inst ldap-utils [2.4.11-1+lenny1] (2.4.11-1+lenny2 Debian-Security:5.0/stable) []
**Inst ldap-utils [2.4.11-1+lenny1] (2.4.11-1+lenny2 Debian-Security:5.0/stable) []
Inst libldap-2.4-2 [2.4.11-1+lenny1] (2.4.11-1+lenny2 Debian-Security:5.0/stable)
**Inst libldap-2.4-2 [2.4.11-1+lenny1] (2.4.11-1+lenny2 Debian-Security:5.0/stable)
Conf libldap-2.4-2 (2.4.11-1+lenny2 Debian-Security:5.0/stable)
Conf ldap-utils (2.4.11-1+lenny2 Debian-Security:5.0/stable)
APT CRITICAL: 2 packages available for upgrade (2 critical updates). 

Nagios displays in the Service Status Detail page for all Hosts for
each service the *first* line of each plugins output. So it displays
for this example:

Inst ldap-utils [2.4.11-1+lenny1] (2.4.11-1+lenny2 Debian-Security:5.0/stable) []

instead of

APT CRITICAL: 2 packages available for upgrade (2 critical updates).

So, this last line should appear as first line of the output instead.
