[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#669312: check_dig thinks that :: is not :0:

Package: nagios-plugins-standard
Version: 1.4.15-5
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream


check_dig does not handle IPv6 addresses with the intelligence that it
needs. For example:

/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_dig --hostname
--query_address=guanabara.rederio.br --record_type=AAAA
--expected_address=2001:12f0:4c2::222:19ff:febd:98c2 --verbose
/usr/bin/dig @ -p 53 guanabara.rederio.br -t AAAA 
Looking for: '2001:12f0:4c2::222:19ff:febd:98c2'
guanabara.rederio.br.   86400   IN      AAAA	2001:12f0:4c2:0:222:19ff:febd:98c2

rederio.br.             86400   IN      NS      rio.rederio.br.
rederio.br.             86400   IN      NS      guanabara.rederio.br.

rio.rederio.br.         86400   IN      A
guanabara.rederio.br.   86400   IN      A

note 19ff::febd on the command line (which is the output given, for
example, by the ruby Resolv library) and 19ff:0:febd in the output
given by dig.

This is an upstream bug. Does upstream have a tracker, or do I need to
report this to nagios-users?
