It is, and I forgot an option to turn that off. I've implemented that
now, so you can run hobbitd_client with a "--no-clear-msgs" option and
it will not mess with your msgs status.

It's in the latest snapshot.

I've removed all of the BB client configuration-settings from the 
hobbitserver.cfg file, since they apparently cause lots of confusion.
Hobbit never looks at those - they were there solely to cater for
running the BB client via hobbitlaunch. So now Hobbit will only include
the definitions for commands used by scripts, not all of the BB client
configuration settings.
