Sure thing. But how to support the community (e.g. in IRC) by telling 
them "delete sth in the code and then recompile". This remains a major 
bug and should be fixed in a release soon. Also within already created 
packages and so on.

In the Opsview repository, a patch for this is accessible, but I think 
the community wouldn't mind getting the "host checks skipped" bug fixed 
too within Nagios 3.2.3 - would create a nice release blog post and a 
bit more focused on development than keeping other issues with more 
priority as it seems.

If you require more test reports (as Tony stated on IRC that Ethan wants 
that): The fix has been tested and debugged on Icinga Core, same 
behavior, same bugfix, same successful tests. If needed, I'll clone 
Andreas' GIT and run several tests against Nagios Core too, but since 
the code in this regard is merely the same, putting that up to a release 
should be no problem. But if you do think different, no offense taken.

Kind regards,
