[Nagiosplug-help] Nagios NRPE and check_mem plugin

Hi list

I have an interesting situation.

When I run NRPE through xinetd, I can run remote plugins normally
 with the exception of check_mem: a perl script that parses the
 /dev/mem file.

If I run NRPE as a standalone daemon, I can run check_mem just fine.
  Both ways, NRPE starts with user=nagios and group=nagios.

I have it working normally on another machine, so this is unique
 to only one.

Anyone else seen this?

Any suggestions, ideas, complaints?

Let me know if you need more info, thanx in advance.
