I also got the problem and found, that if you change the URL and enter a 
nonexisting name for ...bb-hostsvc.sh?HOST=asdasdasd&SERVICE=info you 
always get an internal server error. So I think, this is a bug in 
bb-hostsvc.cgi for non existing hosts, you should not get an 'Premature 
end of script headers' but an html error page 'status not available, 
host not valid' or something like that.

I only got this for 'SERVICE=info' and 'SERVICE=trends' for other 
services I got a correct 'Status not available'. Source was hobbit-4.2.0 
with the allinonepatch included.
