[Nagiosplug-help] Incorrect check_nt behavior?

In setting up COUNTERS with check_nt, I noticed this problem:

# ./check_nt -H host -p 5667 -v COUNTER -l "\\Server\\Server  
Sessions","Server Sessions: %.f" -w 20 -c 30

Server Sessions: 1 | 'Server Sessions: %.f'=1.000000%; 

Notice that the value of the current check in the perfdata is  
automatically labeled with a '%' despite the warn and crit values not  
percentages. In my case, using PNP for trending, it totally screws up  
the graphs and makes the data look wrong because of things like sql  
transactions/sec--which are typically well over 100--being labeled as  
a percent value.

Is there something I am missing that changes this and, if not, how do  
I submit a request to have this seemingly incorrect behavior changed?
