[hobbit] Why the white dots

The white dot means "responded, but no data."  as opposed to the dash
which means "no response, did not expect one" that is needed to fill
cells in the Hobbit display tables.  After 24 hours, the white dot turns
into a black dot that is not as obvious.

I just installed a new client (4.20 with all-in-one patch) on a RHE4
server and, for the most part things look good. But I get white dots for
"files", "msgs" "ports" and "procs". I didn't define any files or ports
for the machine but I did put a few procs into "hobbit-clients.cfg" and
did change permissions on the /var/log/messages files. (Note: I do have
many other such servers being monitored without the white dots)
