Subject: nagios-nrpe-server: should set the socket to close on exec
Date: Tue, 08 Dec 2009 19:43:57 +1100
Package: nagios-nrpe-server
Version: 2.12-1
Severity: minor

When nrpe executes a child process (such as mailq) as part of it's checks the
socket file handle is left open.  It should set the file handle to close on
exec before calling popen() and similar functions to avoid this.

I will provide a patch for this in the near future.
