Hi all.  My first post here. So please bear with me.

Installed the HEAD release from the Nagios website last night and while everything is working, I am not able to reschedule commands as I get a message saying that the permissions on the nagios.cmd file are not correct.  What should the permissions on this file be?

I believe this fix has already been applied to CVS head, and is awaiting feedback from testers of that copy before a new release is approved.  If you have a chance to try a build from CVS HEAD and report your experience the the -devel mailing list that would be very helpful.
