While I acknowledge this problem was introduced by Red Hat, I thought  
our latest code provided a suitable fix. If this is not working for  
you, then that suggests we need to do something else to our code or  
at least provide enough information about workarounds/solutions.

I'd be grateful for any more information and recommendations on what  
we can do about this, from a Nagios plugins perspective.
