This is strange... You can replicate pretty much the nagios environment
by running the plugins as the nagios user and prepending a "env -i " to
the command, i.e.:

$ env -i /path/to/plugin args...

Unfortunately if you can't reproduce it from the command line I can't
really help... The only thing I can suggest is double-checking that
you're passing the same arguments (and using the same plugin) in the
Nagios config.
