Hi Henrik

I have 2 questions about badTEST :

- if I want a test to go yellow at the 1st failure and red at the 2nd, 
is the syntax "badTEST:1:1:2" correct ?

I had problems with bbgen 2.16 (some tests went red at the 1st failure). 
With the patch you posted and latest 4.1.2 snapshot, I get this

yellow for 00:53
and then red

Is it because "bbretest" runs every minute ?

- if I want ALL my network tests to go yellow at the 1st failure and red 
at the 2nd, can I add this at the top of my bb-hosts :         .default.       # badconn:1:1:2 badftp:1:1:2 
badtelnet:1:1:2 [...]

Thanks in advance for your answers.
