Hi Phil. I have found a small typo in the code that may or may not be
the cause of your woes, my last email to this group detailed it:

Having made this change I found that the list of ghost servers was
indeed valid. I also found that manually editing the bb-hosts file,
adding one of the ghosts to the end of it (as you might do via a script
if you have the "Unknown hosts" listed at the end) and waiting about
five minutes did cause that machine to be added into the main Hobbit
pages and be removed from the Ghosts list.
I am running Hobbit 4.2.0 on a Solaris 10 server, nothing special.

	Let me know if you get this working...
	I have been unsuccessful in using the ghostlist report using bb.
It is not consistent. ghostlist does not stop reporting on hosts after
they have been added to bb-hosts. There has not been a clear answer as
to why from the list. Do a search of the mailing list to see my

		bb "ghostlist"
