You have some new-line problems there. The layout of a combo
message should be
So your first blank line between the "combo" and the "status" should
not be there. Not sure if this is what causes the problem, though...
It could also be that your "test.txt" file has DOS/Windows style
line termination (carriage-return + newline), this would also
Hobbit might be a bit more finicky about this than BB, but it
was tested with the Big Brother "bb" client. And Hobbit does use
combo messages internally, e.g. for all of the network test
status messages (try running "bbcmd bbtest-net --no-update" and
see the messages that get sent to the Hobbit server).
The data you're sending looks pretty much like a standard Unix client
report. Any particular reason why you're not just using the normal
Hobbit client and the "bb" utility to send the data ?
