Anything unusual in the /var/log/hobbit/page.log file ?

What happens if you login as the hobbit user and run the script like

BBALPHAMSG="Just a test" \
ACKCODE="12345" \
RCPT="006xxxxxx" \
BBHOSTNAME="some.host.name" \
BBSVCNAME="conn" \
BBSVCNUM="300" \
BBHOSTSVC="some.host.name.conn" \
BBHOSTSVCCOMMAS="some,host,name.conn" \
BBNUMERIC="30001000000000112345" \

That's basically what Hobbit does when running the script.
