nagios - authorization error when selecting non-networsk Service

OS: SLES 10 SP 2 i586

nagios-2.6-13.16
nagios-plugins-1.4.5-16.13

simple default configuration (/etc/nagios attached)

I have created an htpasswd account "nagiosadmin" with the following command

# htpasswd2 -c /etc/nagios/httpusers nagiosadmin

then open the browser, and

http://localhost/nagios
then login with "nagiosadmin" account

Now I every thing works except the following

in webpage(http://localhost/nagios) click on the Trends(under Reporting) > select Type: Service > select Service: localhost;Current Load > Create Report

got the following error:

"It appears as though you are not authorized to view information for the specified service..."

either I select "localhost;Current Processes" or "localhost;Current Users", I got the same error

But when when I select "localhost:SSH" or "localhost:HTTP" it works fine

please help

Re: nagios - authorization error when selecting non-networsk Service

I even tried to install nagios from source (nagios-3.0.3)

after installing the nagios-3.0.3,
firefox > http://localhost/nagios
then provided the credentials of nagiosadmin
and then
in webpage(http://localhost/nagios) click on the Trends(under Reporting) ... got the following error page

Object not found!
