[Nagiosplug-devel] contrib/check_mssql.sh 2.0 not properly deleting $errorfile .

At the beginning of version 2.0 of the contrib/check_mssql.sh script, the
following file gets created:

Line 67: errorfile=`$mktempcmd /tmp/$hostname.XXXXXX`

However, upon "successful" completion, the cleanup command issued is:

Line 95: $rmcmd -f $tmpfile $resultfile;

This means that the $errorfile created above isn't properly cleaned up, and
quickly starts to clutter up /tmp .

The other cleanup command,

Line 102: $rmcmd -f $tmpfile $resultfile $errorfile

never gets executed, due to the fact that the script exits at the end of the
if/else block starting with:

Line 88: if [ "$resultfileln" == "2" ]; then

This appears to still be the case in the snapshot at
