I have xymon 4.2.3 server running on solaris 10.  This is  a new xymon 
install and I have been setting up the initial alerts and changing 
hobbit-clients.cfg and hobbit-alerts.cfg.  Alerts are generally working 
as I intended.  However, at some point, I also began getting the 
following alert:

Hobbit [398021] xymon:hobbitd_alert stopped reporting (PURPLE)

red - Program crashed

Fatal signal caught!

The hobbitd_alert process continues to run (see below) and alerts 
continue to be generated.  I have backed out almost all my changes to 
hobbit-alerts.cfg so it is "bare bones".  The crashes continue.  Any 
suggestions on how to troubleshoot this?  I would enable debugging per 
the hobbitd_alert MAN page if I could determine how to do that.

thanks in advance,
