AFAIK The 1/3 indicates a "soft" state and Nagios reports a problem only in a "hard" 
state, that means in your case after 3 unsuccessful checks. 
Maybe this is the case here. What happens if you wait for a while to let it check the 
disk several more times ?
You could tell nagios to treat the first warning as "hard" via the config files, though.
