This is wrong, as WEXITSTATUS() sometimes returns 0 even though the child
was killed by a signal. In such cases, Nagios needs to notice the state
and do something appropriate with it. The current behaviour is, I think,
the correct one. What was the observed problem that this patch fixed for
you? The original post doesn't give a particular reason for the patch

Considering the successes of the wars on alcohol, poverty, drugs and
terror, I think we should give some serious thought to declaring war
on peace.
