Hello Henrik,

Just to confirm this: your patch seems to be working OK. I set
"badhttp:0:1:2" and have now seen the http test go from green to yellow
before turning red.

Thanks! This will keep down the number of false alerts.

There has been some reports about this, but I never got around to
looking into exactly what caused it.

the string testname always includes the :x.y:z settings and swalk->testname
(of course) not.

Aha - that would explain it.

I think this patch should fix it, then.
