Running nagios on RedHat 9.0 I noticed a bug with check_ping.
/bin/ping on RH9.0 outputs all messages on STDOUT and nothing on STDERR
so checks for host unreachable and other error messages never come
through and instead you get an UNKNOWN state instead.
Parsing of the ping output for errors should be moved to the STDOUT loop
and I think the STDERR loop could be safely removed.
