[hobbit] NCV problems still

Hi Tracy, 

Thanks for the response. If you are expecting the number of variables to
vary from one status message to the next then you need to write your own
parsing script and store the variables in individual RRD's ala how the
disk rrd's are built.

Fy first status message has a DEV line and a RUN line but it seems to
only process the DEV line. It has me stumped. I'm almost ready to give
up on the NCV functionality and write my own parsing script.

I was only able to get multiple variables into an rrd by deleting the
rrd and starting over, then it started saving all of the variables
properly.  I assume the rrd file can't really grow new variables.
I haven't yet figured out how to graph all of them though.
