Just a wild guess, but I think just "ssh_disk" is broken and "ssh_disk_4"
works? ssh_disk is missing a "'\'".
Could you please try the following:

command_line    /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_by_ssh -H '$HOSTADDRESS$' -C '/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_disk -w '\''$ARG1$'\'' -c '\''$ARG2$'\'' -e -p '\''$ARG3$'\'

Thanks and with kind regards, Jan.
