Are you 'literally' running "munin-run {plugin}" or are you specifying
the plugin?
What does the following command output? eg:

[somedude at somebox plugins] # munin-run --debug mysql_threads
# Setting /rgid/ruid/ to /997/99/
# Setting /egid/euid/ to /997 997/99/
# Setting up environment
# About to run '/etc/munin/plugins/mysql_threads'
