[Nagiosplug-devel] check_ping problem

I found a problem with check_ping and domain names that it doesn't like.
To the best of my knowledge, the following is not a problem DNS record:

[root at BAMBAM libexec]# ./check_ping -H
tap-5300h.2wachovia.nc.windchannel.com -w 100,10%% -c 100,10%%
check_ping: Invalid host name/address -

If I take out the "2" then I get:

[root at BAMBAM libexec]# ./check_ping -H
tap-5300h.wachovia.nc.windchannel.com -w 100,10%% -c 100,10%%
PING CRITICAL - Host not found (tap-5300h.wachovia.nc.windchannel.com)

Am I doing something wrong, or is this an actual problem with check_ping
and domains that begin with numbers? Thanks.

- For the record, because I wanted to get this in the monitoring system,
I changed the subdomain to wachova2.nc.windchannel.com, so no, the
records above do not exist anymore.
