Hi.

With check_disk v1.4.15 (nagios-plugins 1.4.15):

# /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_disk -l -u bytes -x /dev -x /lib/init/rw -x /dev/shm
DISK OK - free space: / 5560602624 B (61% inode=81%);| /=3483860992B;;;0;9528483840

# /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_disk -l -u bytes -x /dev -x /lib/init/rw -x /dev/shm -M
DISK OK - free space: /dev/mapper/vg_system-root 5560578048 B (61% inode=81%);| /dev/mapper/vg_system-root=3483885568B;;;0;9528483840

When I add -M the device and not the mountpoint is given; so the behaviour seems to be just swapped as documented.

Also, the documentation speaks about mountpoints vs. partitions.
Please use "devices" instead of partitions, as the devices need not to be partitions.

Cheers,
Chris.
