[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#665422: nagios-nrpe-server: init-script doesn't notice when starting the daemon fails, pid file is left inconsistent

Package: nagios-nrpe-server
Version: 2.12-5
Severity: normal


Maybe this is an upstream issue.
I noticed that when nrpe startup in daemon mode fails (e.g. due
to a wrongly set config option), the init script doesn't notice
and fail.
Also the pid file isn't cleanly removed then, which could mean
that another process is later on wrongly killed.
