First thanks for an excellent product - we think its a fantastic thing to give us a "heads up" to potential problems.

I have just moved from Hobbit 4.2.0 to Xymon 4.3.0-0.beta2 and simply moved across the bb-hosts file from the hobbit to the xymon directory (both installed on the same server) and found that although everything is working fine the comments field seems to being ignored by xymon. Here is a fragment of  our bb-hosts:

group Netware Servers    wigan.xsheffield.nhs.uk         # COMMENT:"West Court Site Server"

This appears on xymon's webpage as:
wigan.xsheffield.nhs.uk	conn:green:19h33m 	info:green:........ 

I cant find anything in hobbitserver.cfg (or indeed in bbgen) to turn on or off comments processing so I was wondering if it was a bug?

Interestingly on your webpage's example bb-hosts you have this line:
group-compress <font size="+1">Wireless</font>     wifi.hswn.dk		# COMMENT:"Wi-Fi router" nobb2
and again on the actual web page (http://www.hswn.dk/hobbit/services/services.html) no comment is displayed.
