Just a small update:  Your bug is "fixed" in version 1.4.6-2 (available
in Debian unstable and testing branches) and in version
1.4.6-1.1+squeeze1, which will be part of the next point release of
Debian Squeeze.  However it was "just" fixed by updating the
documentation, as really fixing it would require rewriting (and testing)
all maintainer scripts.

However, I hope to really address this bug when uploading a new upstream
version of nagvis the coming days, where I will move the default
configuration to a different backend (livestatus instead of ndoutils),
where you don't have to configure database access.

By the way:  The new package versions I uploaded also fix some other
minor issues, so I hope you'll find them usefull nontheless.

Best Regards,
