New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

- typo in error message (bnc#439857)

- fix duplicate registration warnings on startup (bnc#326957)

- container insert errors reproducable with shared ip setups (bnc#396773)

- typo in the snmpd init script to really load all agents (bnc#415127)

- logrotate config to restart the snmptrapd aswell (bnc#378069)
