Package: nagios3
Version: 3.5.1-1
Followup-For: Bug #725826

Dear Maintainer,
I have tested version 3.5.1 and problem is still there, so upgrading to this version won't help

   * What led up to the situation?
=> I had to upgrade from nagios 3.2 to 3.4 to solve some bugs, but I did cope with this bug that is increasing load on server and is triggering false alarm on checks that calculate rates when run too quickly (ex: check_snmp --rate)

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or ineffective)?
=> Nagios 3.2 is not affected, Nagios 3.4.1-3 and 3.4.1-5 are affected
=> I did test version 3.5.1 and problem is still there
=> I did update http://tracker.nagios.org/view.php?id=388 too quickly, problem is still there, trying to have it reopened
=> I am currently checking the link in the last update of the Debian bug to see if I found something...

   * What was the outcome of this action?
=> Problem is still there with nagios 3.5.1

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
=> That rescheduled check remove the old one, to prevent having it duplicated

   * Next Steps
1) Can some other people reproduce / acknowledge the problem
2) Test version 4.x

Thanks & Best Regards
