I have a problem with the check_nt plugin, with the counter variable.
When the name of the counter contain a coma "," check_nt use the text after the coma as a description :
For example :
The counter is :
	\Disque physique(_Total)\Lectures disque, octets/s

My command line is : 
	./check_nt -H hcu11  -p 1248 -v COUNTER  -s "public" -l "\\Disque physique(_Total)\\Lectures disque, octets/s"

I modified the sources, and I had some printf:

Here ==>>		printf ("\nvalue list : %s\n",value_list);
      		if (value_list == NULL)
			output_message = strdup (_("No counter specified"));
	  		else if ((counter_unit == NULL) && (description != NULL))
Here ==>>				printf("\ncounter_unit %s, description %s\n",counter_unit,description);
					output_message = strdup (_("No unit counter specified"));
	  		if (allRight)

And the result of the command line is :
	m9427:/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/libexec# ./check_nt -H hcu11  -p 1248 -v COUNTER  -s "public" -l "\\Disque physique(_Total)\\Lectures disque, octets/s"

	value list : \Disque physique(_Total)\Lectures disque, octets/s

	counter_unit (null), description  octets/s
	No unit counter specified

I also try with 
	./check_nt -H hcu11  -p 1248 -v COUNTER  -s "public" -l "\\Disque physique(_Total)\\Lectures disque\, octets/s"
The result is the same.

I hope we will find a solution.
PS : Before this problem I have had problems with the accents "é" solved by using a perl script : 

	$response2 = `/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/libexec/check_nt -H $ARGV[0] -p 1248 -v COUNTER  -s "public" -l "\\Disque physique(_Total)\\Lectures disque\\, octets/s"`;
	chomp $response2;
	($used) = ($response2);

	print "$response2\n";

Thanks you for your help, I'm a french user of nagios ;)
