Actually they aren't supposed to be. You are supposed to be able to
specify multiple commands for check_by_ssh to run. The first line is
returned as output for the check_by_ssh command and the subsequent
output is supposed to be sent to the nagios core as as passive
commands to set the status of the additional services check_by_ssh is
supposed to check.

So does this mean that there is no chance to fix check_by_ssh to run
multiple commands (which is really useful for reducing load)?
