OK, this actually corresponds nicely with the previous report where
you had some strange shmem-regions with 0xffffffff as the key. Only
difference is that now this error is caught and Hobbit refuses to run.

Where is you bb-hosts file located ?

"/usr/local/hobbit/server/etc/bb-hosts: No such file or directory"

indicates that it isn't where hobbitd expects it to be, based on
the BBHOSTS setting in hobbitserver.cfg.

If your bb-hosts file really does exist with that filename, could
you send me the AIX man-page for the "ftok" function (just dump the
output of "man ftok" to a file and send it directly to me) ?
