following the discussion, I see no other option for me than recompile nrpe with command args enabled and set it to hold.
About the arguments flowing between the paticipants of this bug report: I don't know about prior discussions. Most Debian users don't know about these. And I think people like Jan Huijsmans and Michal Zelinka are unneccessarily rude. I understand Alexander Wirt. Maintaining software he was somehow pestered into only to get beaten off with decision he made and is supported by the debian security team is not a nice thing.
Now everyone is pissed and nrpe_server is orphan. Also not a good way.
But I must agree that (from the users's point) silently disabling a feature some people were relying on without any warning is not a good way. What *could* have been done in this case was utilizing a message pop up like some other packages do when substancial an incompatible changes in the software were about to happen with the installation. Could have saved me debugging time.
