Package: monitoring-plugins-basic
Version: 2.2-3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

After upgrading to Stretch, and replacing Nagios with Icinga, Icinga
reported a problem with the DHCP check:

"Got unexpected non-option argument"

If I edit '/etc/nagios-plugins/config/dhcp.cfg', and change:

    command_line    /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_dhcp -s


    command_line    /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_dhcp -s '$HOSTADDRESS$'

...the problem goes away.

Icinga seems to invoke 'check_dhcp' with an extra, unwanted non-option
