Bug Description

I am currently running Karmic.


After upgrading from Jaunty, the nagios-nrpe-server init script now returns an error on start.

$ sudo /etc/init.d/nagios-nrpe-server restart
 * Stopping nagios-nrpe nagios-nrpe
[: 72: unexpected operator


There is a syntax error in the 'start' case statement. Fix the typo and the error goes away (see attached patch).
