I don't know which "bb" command you're using, but that error message 
does not look like anything that I wrote in the Hobbit "bb" utility.
In fact, I checked and
   henrik at osiris:~/hobbit$ grep -i "can.t open" */*.c
finds no matches in my Hobbit sources.

A connect-error should give you either 
   "connect to bbd failed - <OS errortext>" 
   "Could not connect to bbd@<some more text>"

I think those two observations are un-related. Are your memory RRD files
being updated ? If not, are there any errors in the rrd-status.log file?
If you run (as the hobbit user) 
   bbcmd hobbitd_channel --channel=status grep -A 10 "^@@.*|memory|"
do any memory status updates appear for these hosts, and what do they
look like ?
