[hobbit] New to Hobbit --- file monitoring

I used the Ubuntu apt-get to install it. There's a hobbit log in
/var/log/hobbit that seems to be getting updated:
I noted the following in clientlaunch.log.1:
Cannot open configuration file /usr/lib/hobbit/client/etc/clientlaunch.cfg:
No such file or directory
It looks like it may be using hobbitlaunch.cfg for the client.
