There are similar sort of bugs in check_disk with respect to other OS

They will are become moot with the version of check_disk in CVS, which
will be the 1.4.0 release. At this point, the CVS tree seems quite
usable - so you may want to use those plugins. The remaining changes
(and there are still many) have to do with things like documentation,
multilingual patches, etc.

So while you may find the odd day where it won't compile, you may want
to give it a shot.

One caveat -- check_udp presently does not work right.
