It looks like something is eating the quotes in the command_line
section, otherwise -O:CRITICAL:-:Plugin:timed:out:after:10:seconds''
would be -O:'CRITICAL - Plugin timed out after 10 seconds'.  Since you
are joining @ARGV on ":", it looks like the shell (or whatever it is)
that is populating argv is Doing The Wrong Thing.

Forgive me if this is obvious to everyone but me, but what is the
command for which the "define command { }" config files are relevant,
and how is it being invoked?
