Hi Martin,

	I have tried specifying the command line exactly like  you have

I get this when I attempt to run mrtg

ERROR: CFG Error in "threshprogi[router_se1]", line 36: Threshold program
 /usr/local/bin/mrtgthresholdover.sh $THRESH_DESC cannot be executed

If I remove the $THRESH_DESC  everything runs nicely

It becomes a variable in your program.
>ThreshProgI[router_Se1]: /usr/local/bin/mrtgthresholdover.sh $THRESH_DESC

The shell script as you have here will need to 
echo $THRESH_DESC or something like that ( I use Perl )
