After upgrading to the 4.1.1-1 debian package, I thought "great, I can
just stop the BB client and see what happens"...

Well, not much happened, except the status logs stopped updating.

It looks like there might be a few things missing:

1) a init script to start the client
> The Hobbit client is automatically installed and activated when
> a Hobbit server is installed. 

Nope, it wasn't... or did I do something wrong?

> Client-only installations are described in the README.CLIENT file included with Hobbit 4.1.

2) Documentation, this file is missing in the deb package, and probably
other docs might be missing as well, so it makes me feel better as to
why I haven't got the client working yet...

Also, it would be really nice if we had a deb package which included
just the client. Then, we could have a hobbit-server package and a
hobbit-client package. We don't need to install the hobbit server on
every machine we want to monitor, just the client, and we retain the
advantage of using deb package management features...

Apart from that, I've had no problems with 4.1.1 (but I didn't have any
problems with 4.0.4 either :)
