Always use the "bbcmd" utility to setup the environment for
your tests. That's the only way you can make sure hobbitd_alert
inherits the settings from your hobbitserver.cfg - if you don't
use bbcmd, then it will use the built-in (compile-time) defaults.

So your command should be
   bbcmd hobbitd_alert --test tac0.lon.ws.colt.net proc
